My name is Paul Howlett. My Gt. Grandfather was John Howlett. He married Harriet Hannah Letheby in Gloucester in 1850. They went to St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A. My Grandfather, William Edward Howlett, was born there in 1854 -and his Sister, Margaret Fanny Howlett, in 1856. They returned to England in 1857. John Howlett died that year. The children were brought up by the Letheby's (Harriet's parents) Margaret married William George Cook, in Cheltenham, in 1878. -Harriet re-married to Charles William Hall, in Cheltenham, in 1872.
I am using the computer of a friend, so it would be best if you would telephone me on 01225 315896 & leave a message & 'phone no. I could take you back on both the Howlett & Letheby sides, to the 18th. century. Please do contact me. Best wishes, Paul H.
