Hi. I am related to John Seymour Howell and have quite a lot of information about him. He was born on 11 Jan 1815 and baptised in Sandys parish church on 5 Nov 1815. His parents were John Howell and Elizabeth Burch Seymour. I don't know what happened to his father, but his mother Elizabeth went on to have 5 other children with someone named a Squire Bennett, although they were not married at the time: William Robert Bennett/Howell, James Squire Bennett/Howell, Keturah Seymour Bennett/Howell, Caroline Seymour Bennett and Elizabeth Bennett. The family moved to England (to Devon) at some point, where Elizabeth married a Daniel Muxworthy in 1831. John Seymour Howell married Hannah Maria Wright in London in 1846 and they had 10 children. He died in 1878 of heart disease. I have quite a lot of other information about the family if you would like it.
