5th Earl of Suffolk

Son of Theophilius Howard, 2nd Earl of Suffolk, and Lady Elizabeth Home. Paternal grandson of Thomas Howard, 1st Earl of Suffolk, and Katherine Knyvett. Maternal grandson of George Home, 1st and last Earl of Dunbar, and Elizabeth Gordon.

Henry was the youngest son of the 2nd Earl, but inherited the title because none of his brothers left surviving sons. Like his elder brother James, he was married three times.

By his first wife, the Honourable Mary Stewart, daughter of the 3rd Baron Castle Stewart and Joyce Blundell, he had three sons.

His other marriages - to Mary Ronkswood and to Mary Upton - produced no surviving children.

He was succeeded by his eldest son Henry.

The 5th Earl of Suffolk is buried in the Howard Vault. The vault, now completely bricked in, was closed in 1860.
