About Me
John Howland (~1599 - 23 February 1672/3), Mayflower passenger, signer of the Mayflower Compact, and early settler of Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts.

Howland traveled to MA as the indentured servant of Plymouth governor John Carver, becoming a freeman in 1621 following Carver's death. He held various local offices, and was deputy to the Plymouth General Court from 1641-1655 and in 1658.

Howland married fellow passenger Elizabeth Tilley; the pair had ten children and 88 grandchildren (many of whose probate inventories also include books).
