Biography
Jeremiah was born in England about 1614; he came to this country with his father on board the ship "Truelove" in 1635. He was then about 21 years of age. It is quite certain that he lived in Lynn, Mass. a few years. He moved from Lynn to New Haven, Ct., as early as 1644.

He married a woman who we only know as Elizabeth (Ancestry Unknown). The records of New Haven show that he was a lot owner there in 1643, and also that he took the oath of fidelity May 2, 1647. He was dismissed from the church of Lynn in 1645, and in the same year his name appears as one of the members of Centre Church in New Haven. He probably kept a public inn, for he was licensed "to sell strong water by pints or quarts".

He and his brother Ephriam afterwards settled in Wallingford, Ct. His name and the names of his sons Zachariah and Nathaniel, are found among those of the first settlers, proprietors and taxpayers of Wallingford. His will is dated 11/18/1677, is recorded in New Haven probate Records, Vol.2, p.77. In this will it is recited that he was a mariner and is about to sail for the Barbados, and he leaves everything to his wife Eliza. (Elizabeth). Appended to this will is the following: " We whose names are underwritten do hereby signify and declare that we are fully satisfied". (signed) Zachary How, Nathaniel How, Jeremiah How and Joseph How.

The will of Elizabeth Howe bearing date of 11/19/1690, is also of record in the New Haven Probate Records, in which she mentioned her sons Zachariah, Nathaniel, Jeremy, Joseph, and John, and her grand-child "Lidia", probably Lydia, daughter of her son Nathaniel, born November 6, 1675. In this will her son John is named as Executor. The same records show that " widow Eliz'h died 1/23/1695-6. It would seem therefore, to be quite reasonable to say Jeremiah had two children, Zachariah and Nathaniel, born ( probably in Lynn) before he went to New Haven. Jeremiah died in New Haven on 11/16/1690-1.
