The Society of the Descendants of Pilgrim John Howland, of the Ship Mayflower was organized at the Parker House in Boston, Massachusetts on May 18, 1897. It was incorporated in September 1911. In 1912, they purchased the Howland House in Plymouth, Massachusetts, an historic house which they restored and opened to the public. The Society published a magazine, "The Howland homestead" from July 1911 to April 1913. The Society's name was changed to the Pilgrim John Howland Society, Inc. in 1925. In 1936, they began publishing "The Howland quarterly." The Society also maintains the home site property in Rocky Nook, Kingston, Massachusetts. For select articles and letters from the president, and other information, see their Web site.

Newsletter for the interchange of genealogical data and history of the Howland families in America, with focus on the descendants of John Howland (ca. 1592-1672) and Elizabeth Tilley (ca. 1606-1687). John was a Pilgrim, and the son of Henry Howland and Anne Margaret Aires. Elizabeth was the daughter of the Pilgrims John Tilley and Elizabeth Lancaster. In 1620, their families left England and came to America on the ship Mayflower. John and Elizabeth were married in 1623, and had twelve children, some of whom died young. Those who reached adulthood were Desire, John, Hope, Elizabeth, Lydia, Hannah, Joseph, Jabez, Ruth, and Isaac. The family moved to Maine in 1632. Later John and Elizabeth settled in Plymouth, at Rocky Nook, Kingston, Massachusetts, where they lived in their later years. Descendants also lived in Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Quebec (Canada), Cuba, Denmark, Spain, and in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Washington D.C., Wisconsin, and elsewhere.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.


Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
