Howell was a Welsh name derived from Hywel, a popular Welsh king. Mary was the daughter of Philip Howell, but her name is listed as Mary Elwell, so she must have been a widow when she and John Ashbrook married June 28, 1687. (It seems obvious that he married her when his five years of servitude to John Atkinson were completed.) She bore him five children, including our ancestor, Aaron Ashbrook. After her death, John married Hester Hamilton July 21, 1708.
