382nd Anniversary of Edward Howell Celebration

The Edward Howell Family Association Celebrates the 382nd

Anniversary of Edward Howell to Southampton, the first English

Settlement in New York State

On October 11th , 2022, the descendants of Edward Howell will gather to celebrate the

382nd Anniversary of Edward Howell’s arrival from Lynn, Massachusetts in 1640 to

what is now known as Southampton, the first English settlement in New York State.

The Edward Howell Family Association (“EHFA”) returns to Southampton every five (5)

years, with this reunion originally scheduled for 2020. The EHFA membership has

grown to over 200 members since its humble beginnings in the mid 1970’s. EHFA

holds annual reunions around the country that are hosted by various association

members, with our 2023 reunion being planned to take place near Mystic Seaport in


Historical marker at Conscience Point, Long Island, New York.

The EHFA is a non-profit organization dedicated to researching the genealogy of Edward

Howell and his descendants: publishing research by members and others for the benefit of

members and the public, and identifying, restoring, and preserving artifacts, manuscripts,

and real property deemed to be related to Edward Howell and his descendants
