Surnames: Howell, Boyett
Ethelred Edward Howell migrated from Wales to the Virginia Colony between 1670 and 1679. His first child born at Jamestown, Nansemond in the Colony of Virginia in 1680, and a 2nd child born in 1690, with my ancester Henry Howell being born there in 1693.
No prior records found on Ethelred or in family memories other than rumored birth in Wales 1635 or 1668?
Any and all assistance will be greatly appreciated.
I am descended from Henry Howell's son John H. Howell born in 1777, and his marriage to Rachel Boyett (fnu) in Dobbs\Wayne County, NC.

Thanks in advance, Weldon W. Howell @bruceville, Texas

I read where you were planning a trip to Wales last year. Did you have any luck finding details on Etheldred Edward Howell? I have discovered that he either came from Ayrin Flintshire, or maybe moved to Ayershire in Scotland as many Welch did. He would have immigrated to James City, Virginia prior to 1692.

My name is Sharon K. Howell and Ethelred was my 6th Great Grandfather. All I have found so far is that he was born in 1635 in Ayershire, Wale, England and died in Jamestown, Nansemond Co., Virginia and his wife's name was Anna. I have been trying to go back further but I haven't had much luck. Here is the names on my chart.
Sharon K. Howell
Buster L. Howell married Betty Ruth Ray
Floyd Allen Howell married Ana Mae Frazier
Ralph Allen Howell married Paralee Culver
Rev. Ralph Howell married Martha Ann Campbell
Rev. Alfred Cogdell Howell married Sarah Langester, Dicie Taylor
Ralph Howell married Jane Crawford
Henry Howell married Rachel Boyte
Ethelred Edward Howell married Anna

maybe we both have information to help one another. My e-mail is skhowell61@aol.com

Thank You,

After doing DNA, I believe that the Flintshire Wales would be a good eucated guess. There was a Howle out of Staffordshire showed up with the same DNA and he is just a stone's throw from Flintshire.
However the Howle swears his family never left England.

Hi, Tom.
Just to get it on the board and see what anyone else can come up with:
Ayr and Ayrshire are in Scotland and near as I can find out there hasn't been a town of Ayr or shire (county) of Ayr in Wales ever. That said the northernmost point of Wales is "Point of Ayr," in Flintshire. I'm guessing that some descendant couldn't find Ayr in Wales and guessed at Scotland, thus the confusion. Now, if we can find some Howells in Flintshire around 1600. . .

I am guessing that I cl closed my eyes for awhile and now it is months later and I did post anything:
Should anyone anywhere have any additional information regarding Ethelred Edward Howell ====> I would greatly appreciate even if I could have had it long ago. I have lost most of my data in a massive data crash. Most embarasing for a computer nut as I am said to be?
