Here ended the Pilgrimage of
ELIZABETH Tilley HOWLAND
who died Wednesday 21-31
Dec 1687 at home of her daughter
LYDIA & husband JAMES BROWN
in Swansea - ELIZABETH married
Pilgrim JOHN HOWLAND who came
with her in the Mayflower Dec 1620.
From them are descended a
numerous posterity.

In ELIZABETH’S Will the following
inspiring language is used
“It is my will and charge to all my
Children that they walke in ye Feare
of ye Lord and in Love and Peace
towards each other.”

Swansea was the town that grew up around Thomas Willett’s extensive estates in Rhode Island, where the family’s prosperity enabled it to care for more than one distinguished senior kinsman. Our 9GGF Worshipful John Browne, for example, buried close by and father both to Lydia’s husband James Browne and to 8GGM Mary Browne Willett.
