    Notes 
    • This person was originally thought to have been the John Howes who was:
      - the husband of Mrs Howes who perished and was buried in Besthorpe on March 1, 1770, ie, that Sarah Thrower was that wife
      - the person who then married Mary Fryer
      Both of these assumptions are (in retrospect) obviously wrong! The John Howes who m Mary Fryer was a bachelor and John and Sarah Howes went on to produce several children after her putative date of death. Who those other Johns were, remains a mystery!
