    Notes 
    • From Norman How's notes - "James' father was a carpenter and joiner as were two of his brothers, George and Samuel."
    • Norman How:
      "You know , I am sure, that when James How b.1800 dies in Nov 1840, his wife Charlotte Jemima (aka Mima) went by boat from London to Stonehouse (Plymouth), taking her children Jemima Elizabeth (13), James Nicholas (4) and Thomas Waldo (3) with her. This must have been quite an ordeal, especially as, so far as I know, she had no previous knowledge of that part of the country. You must have wondered, as I did, how she managed it, and whether anyone helped her. But I think I have solved this problem.
      The Hows could not help as they were in London, but she was one of a large family of Massetts - 17 of them. One was Rhoda Naomi, 14 years her junior, who married J L Butterworth who dies in 1850.
      Rhoda died in 1879 in Bristol and in her will she was described as of Endsleigh Place, Plymouth"
      In her will Rhoda left money to each of her brothers and sisters, but the greatest single sum of 400 pounds to her sister Charlotte Jemima. They must have been very good friends, and it seems likely that Rhoda found a house for Mia and her children and helped her on her journey. She might even have accompanied her"
