John Howard, with his brother James, came from England and settled in Duxbury : he was among those able to bear arms there in 1643. James, it is said, went to Bermuda, and John came to W. B., and was one of the proprietors and original settlers in the town a. 1651 ; was young when he came over, and it is said, lived in Capt. Miles Standish's family : was a man of much influence in the new plantation ; one of the first military officers in Bridgewater ; took the oath of fidelity here 1657 : his descendants still (1840) own and live on the place where he first settled : he always wrote his name Haward, and so did all his descendants till after 1700, and the early town records are conformable to this spelling ; but for the last century it has been invariably written Howard. It is remarkable that the two names of Hayward and Haward, which have always been known as distinct families, were uniformly pronounced alike, Howard.. They were perhaps the same originally, and both Hayward ; but, in writing, John omitted the Y: There was supposed to have been some connection between the families, but perhaps it arose altogether from intermarriage, as John m.

He had Susanna, Edward 1697, Robert 1699, Martha, Sarah, Bethiah. He d. before 1727, and his estate was settled and divided 1729.
