Jabez3 Howland's Estate

"[From original division] On 18 April, 1734, Thomas Throope, Robert Jolls, Samuel Royall, John Bosworth and Jonathan Peck, made 'an Equall Division of the Reall Eastate in Bristll' as follows:

'To Jabez Howland oldestt son …'

'To Thomas Howland one of the Sons …'

'To ms Bethiah Davis one of the Daughters …'

'To Mercy martindall one of the Daughters …'

'To Elisabeth Little one of the Daughters …'

'To sarah Lawton one of the Daughters …'

'To Patience one of the Daughters …'

The division was allowed, 21 May, 1734. [The division was also recorded, 8:115.]"[4]

NOTE: A widow Howland is mentioned in the division but only as an abutting landowner. It is not clear whether she was the widow of Jabez3 Howland or of another Howland male.

    Jabez3 Howland (Jabez2, John1) was born at Plymouth 15 November 1669 and died at Bristol 17 October 1732 in his 64th year, buried 19 October. He and his two wives were buried in St. Michael's Church Cemetery, Bristol. … On 27 November 1732 Bethia Bragg, widow, and Elizabeth Howland, spinster, both of Bristol were appointed administratrixes of the estate of their father Jabez Howland.

    [It is interesting to speculate why two of Jabez' daughters were named as administrators while his second wife was still living. His son Jabez was just underage and the only other daughter of age, Sarah, had married two months earlier. Bethiah had been widowed a few months earlier and did not marry her second husband until the next year and Elizabeth was still single though she, too, married the next year. It may be that Bethia and her young son had moved home to her father's household, so these two daughters were available.]
