James Howe married at Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire, 27 June 1628 Elizabeth Dane, daughter of JOHN DANE {1636, Roxbury} (in his will of 7 September 1658, John Dane included bequests to "my daughter Elizabeth How"). She died at Ipswich on 21 January 1693/4.
They had ten children: a child bur. Bishop's Stortford, Elizabeth, James, John, Mary Bridges, Abraham, & Rebecca Barnard.
Normally when a parent makes a deed to a child late in life, the transfer of land from the older to the younger generation is made in return for maintenance of the parent in his or her old age. James Howe turned the tables on this practice, however, when in 1699 he executed a deed which relieved his ailing son James, then sixty-five years old, of further obligations with regard to three parcels of land. The younger James died on 15 February 1701/2, slightly more than two years after the date of this deed, and three months before the death of his father.
