John Eliot Howard

This site is dedicated to information about the family of

John Eliot Howard FRS (1807-1883)

and his wife

Maria Crewdson (1807-1892)

who lived at
Lord's Meade, Tottenham, London.

The site is provided by the current generation of their descendants to help maintain cousinly links amongst ourselves, and to provide a point of contact for others with an interest in our family history. For over a hundred years, a "Budget" (i.e. a folder) of letters has circulated around representatives of each branch of the family - a process which continued until recently, but which has now been mostly replaced by email communication among those members of the family who wish to take part - contact us via the link below:

John Eliot Howard's Bicentenary
December 2007 was the bicentenary of his birth, and members of his extended family and other cousins celebrated this event with a PARTY on September 15th; a boat trip from London to Kew, was followed by a talk from a Kew Gardens researcher and an exhibition relating to his work on Cinchona.
