Richard Howell, son of Margaret Howell, was born in England. His mother when widowed supposedly married Peter Hallock after his return from the landing at Southold with Rev. John Youngs in 1640. Peter returned to Long Island with Margaret and her young son Richard and settled at Aquebogue after the 1661 division of lots. However the accuracy of the preceding statements have been questioned in view of the information contained in the next paragraph.

Peter Hallock and his first wife had a son William born about 1610 in England. William Hallock married Margaret Howell about 1640 and in 1667 had a home lot in the Southold settlement. He moved to Aquebogue after receiving an allotment of land in 1661. He had a daughter Elizabeth born about 1642 who married Richard Howell.

Richard Howell married Elizabeth Hallock shortly before 1675 as that year William Hallock conveyed land in the Town of Southold to his "son-in-law" Richard Howell. Richard and Elizabeth had nine children including John Howell who was born May 24,1670. Richard died Nov. 9, 1709 and his wife Elizabeth died Jan. 29, 1734.

In 1690 John Howell married Margaret and they had a son John born the following year. Margaret died Feb.2,1708 and John married Hannah Parshall, John and Hannah had a son John born 1718. John died Jan. 20, 1734 reputedly by drowning at Riverhead and Hannah died Mar. 15,1768.

John Howell, born 1718 at Mattituck, son of John and Hannah, married Elizabeth or Hannah Reeve and moved to Middle Island in 1737 where he built a home. They had a son Reeve Howell born 1738 in Middle Island. John died Mar. 17, 1741 in Middle Island and his wife Hannah died in 1784 .

Reeve Howell born 1738 in Middle Island, son of John and Hannah Reeve Howell, married Bathsheba Clark in 1769. Bethsheba was born 1744 and died 1809. Reeve died Sept.3, 1802. Their children included:

Isaac b. 1769 mar. Mary. He died Oct. 27, 1813

James b. 1771 mar. 1795 Caroline Youngs and moved to New Village. He died Sept.28,1848

Daniel b. 1773 mar. Martha. He died Feb. 7,1808
Deborah mar. a Clark
3 others; Mary, Bethsheba, William

Isaac Howell inherited the part of his father's estate south of Granny Road to Middle Island Line. He had a daughter Hannah who married John Swezey,

Daniel Howell inherited the part of his father's estate from Howell's Pond south to Granny Road. That part of the original Howell land north of the pond had been sold before 1802, probably to Joshua Swezey Sr. Daniel's daughter Abigail inherited this land. She married John Buckingham and Apr. 1, 1861 their son Daniel Howell Buckingham sold the farm to William 0. Bartlett.
