The House of Howard (or the House of FitzAlan Howard) is a noble house founded by John Howard who was created Duke of Norfolk by Plantagenet monarch Richard III of England. The Howard's have been part of the nobility since the 15th century and are to this day Premier Dukes of the Realm in the peerage of England, acting as Earl Marshal of England. Throughout the English Reformation the Howard's remained steadfast in their Catholic faith as the most high profile recusant family; two members, Philip Howard, 20th Earl of Arundel and William Howard, 1st Viscount Stafford are regarded as martyrs, a saint and a blessed respectively. The senior line of the house, as well as holding the Dukedom of Norfolk, are also Earl of Arundel, Earl of Surrey, and Earl of Norfolk, as well as holding six baronies. The Arundel title was inherited in 1580, when the Howards became the genealogical successors to the paternally extinct FitzAlans, ancient kin to the Stuarts, dating back to when the family first arrived in Great Britain from Brittany. There have also been several notable cadet branches; those existing to this day include the Howards of Effingham, Howards of Carlisle, Howards of Suffolk and Howards of Penrith. The former three are all holders of earldoms. Throughout much of English and later British history, the Howards have played an important role. Claiming descent from folklore figure Hereward the Wake who resisted the Norman conquest, John Howard fought to the death at the Battle of Bosworth Field in defence of the Yorkist cause. They regained favour with the new Tudor dynasty after leading a defence of England from Scottish invasion at the Battle of Flodden Field and Katherine Howard subsequently became the fifth wife of Henry VIII. While Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk played a significant role in securing the throne for Mary I, later a statesman from the family; Charles Howard, 1st Earl of Nottingham served as Lord Admiral of the English fleet which defeated the invading Spanish Armada.

Preston Hall, Home of the Culpeper FamilyThe Colepepers/Culpepers were of a very ancient Kentish family. Apparently the first Culpeper to own Preston Hall was Sir Thomas Culpeper of Bayhall in Pembury, who was Sheriff of Kent during the reign of Edward I (1272-1307). Sir John of Oxen Hoath (Katherine's great-great-grandfather), was a justice of the Common Pleas in 1406-9. Sir John died in 1414 and by his wife Katherine he left a son, Sir William, who was Sheriff of Kent in 1427. Sir William died in 1457 (date of death disputed and ranges from 1417 to 1457) and was interred in West Peckham church. Sir William had three sons, Sir Richard, William and Geoffrey. Sir Richard inherited the estate. He had three daughters by Isabel Worsley. The second daughter, Joyce, married Lord Edmund Howard (died 1539) and became the mother of Queen Katherine Howard, the fifth wife of Henry VIII. In 1484, the estate passed to Sir Richard's younger brother William, whose son and heir in 1502 was Edward. Edward was interred in 1533 in the chancel at Aylesford near to his mother Margaret. Edward's son and heir was John, who had a son Thomas. On the accession of Queen Mary in July 1553, Thomas joined the rebellion with Sir Thomas Wyatt the Younger. Consequently, the estate of Preston was presented to Mr. Cartwright, the Deputy Sheriff. Thomas Culpeper was confined in the Tower of London. He had a fellow prisoner in Thomas Vane, who had married Thomas's cousin Elizabeth Culpeper. They appeared to have been Protestant martyrs, as suggested by their inscription on the stonewall of their cell:

'Be thou faithful to the end and I will give you a crown of eternal life – 1554, T Fane, T. Culpeper, of Ailsford, Kent.' (from Revelation 2:10.)

They were pardoned and Fane lived to become Sir Thomas Fane of Mereworth Castle. The estate of Preston was restored to Thomas Culpeper, who later became a Revenue Commissioner. In 1561 he was Purveyor of Rochester Bridge.The Culpepers, in the reign of Edward III, separated into two branches; one settled at Bay Hall, near Pepenbury, in Kent, from which descended Baron Colepeper, master of the Rolls in the time of Charles I; and the other seated at Preston Hall, near Aylesford, in the same county, to which John Colepeper, the judge, belonged.
His grandfather was Sir Jeffrey Colepeper, who was Sheriff of Kent in 40 Edward III. And his father's name was William. There is no report of his forensic practice before Henry IV.
Oxen Hoath Manor, Kent, EnglandBut this arises from the want of the Year Books of the preceding reign. In the fourth year of that reign he was appointed a king's Serjeant, and was one of that degree who advanced £100 each on loan to the king. On June 7, 1406, 7 Henry IV, he was raised to the bench as a judge of the Common Pleas; and continuing in that court during the remainder of the reign, he received a new patent on the accession of Henry V. His death occurred towards the end of the following year, no fines having been levied before him after the month of July, 1414. He was buried in the church of West Peckham, which manor, together with those of Oxenhoath and of Swanton Court, he gave to the Knights Hospitallers of St. John of Jerusalem.
By his wife Catherine he left a son, William, who was Sheriff of Kent in 5 Henry VI. To his lineal descendant a baronetcy (that of Preston Hall) was granted in 1627, which became extinct in 1723.
There was also another baronetcy (that of Wakehurst, in Sussex) granted in 1628 to the other branch of the family, which also became extinct in 1740.

John Howard, 1st Duke of NorfolkJohn Howard was the son of Sir Robert Howard (1385–1436) and the former Lady Margaret de Mowbray. He was known as "Jack (or "Jock", hence "Jockey") of Norfolk", and he was described as being a "man of average height, with a strong, square face". The Howards were staunch adherents of the House of York during the Wars of the Roses, and John Howard, backed by his powerful Mowbray relations, upheld the Yorkist cause in Norfolk. After demonstrating his military prowess on the field during the Battle of Towton, Norwich Castlehe won the admiration of Edward IV of England who made him Constable of Norwich Castle, Sheriff of Norfolk and Suffolk, and Treasurer of the Royal Household.

He was summoned to Parliament as Lord Howard on 15 October 1470. He was appointed Lord High Steward and walked in front of King Richard III of England, carrying the crown at his coronation. His eldest son, Thomas, Earl of Surrey carried the sword of state.

For his support of King Richard III during the deposition of King Edward V in 1483, he was created Duke of Norfolk (of the third creation) on 28 June 1483. The first creation of the Dukedom of Norfolk had become extinct on the death of the 4th Duke in 1476, and the second creation had been invalidated by the illegitimization of the 1st Duke of York (one of the Princes in the Tower, who was also 1st Duke of Norfolk) on 25 June 1483. Norfolk was also created Earl Marshal, and Lord Admiral of all England, Ireland, and Aquitaine.

Under his command the English crushed the Scots at the Battle of Flodden Field. Lord Surrey and with victory, was restored to his father's title of Duke of Norfolk in 1514, which title had been forfeit since 1485 because of his father's support of Richard.
Thomas married twice. First to Elizabeth Tylney, widow of Sir Humphrey Bourchier, on 30 April 1472, by whom he had nine children including the mother of Anne Boleyn, Lady Elizabeth Howard and Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk. His second marriage was to Agnes Tylney on 17 August 1497, by whom he had eight more children. It was with this Agnes that Katherine spent most of her time with, growing up in her household with other aristocratic children that were orphaned at an early age.

Lord Edmund Howard
of Flodden Field
(between 1472/1497 - 19 March 1539)
Lord Edmund Howard was born between 1472 and 1497 and died 19 March 1539. He was the third son of Thomas Howard, 2nd Duke of Norfolk and Elizabeth Tilney. He spent his youth hanging about the Court and in 1509 was listed as one of the nobles who organised the jousts for the joint coronation of Henry VIII of England and his new wife, Queen Katherine of Aragon. Although his brother Edward was a close friend of the King's and his brother Thomas became a dominating figure at court, Edmund seems not to have shared the King's favour and seems to have been considered ineffectual.Edmund certainly considered the family as holding him back.Antonia Fraser, in her book makes it quite clear that he was inhibited by his aristocratic birth from making the efforts suitable to those of a lesser degree. She went on to quote him as saying, "If I were a poor man's son, I might dig and delve for my living". His eldest son Henry Howard (eldest brother to Katherine) on the death of Katherine Howard disappeared into the Norfolk countryside near the Suffolk border with family and spent the rest of his life living the simple life. Therefore making Antonia Fraser and others wonder if the thoughts of Edmund were an influence on his son, Henry. In 1531 his niece, Anne Boleyn, helped him find a position as Controller of Calais. Howard's first marriage was to Jocasa Culpeper with whom he had about six or seven children, one of which was Katherine Howard, the fifth queen of Henry VIII of England. When his wife died in the late 1520s he went on to marry two other wives, both widows, by whom he was childless. He was dismissed from his post in Calais, early in 1539 and died shortly afterwards, a year before his daughter became queen of England. His son, Charles went on to arrange a secret marriage to Margaret Douglas, the King's niece, earning him time in the Tower of London.

Jocasa "Joyce" Culpeper
of Oxen Hoath
(c. 1480 - 1531)

Joyce was born in Oxon Hoath, Hadlow, Kent, the first child of Sir Richard Culpeper of Oxon Hoath and his second wife Isabel Worsley. She had a younger sister called Margaret (c.1481) and a younger brother Thomas (1484 -1492). Through her father's first marriage she also had three step-sisters; Elizabeth, Margaret, and Anna. Her father died in 1484 and her mother married again to John Legh of Stockwell. Joyce was also the sister-in-law of Elizabeth Howard, Lady Boleyn and aunt by marriage of Anne Boleyn, Mary Boleyn, and George Boleyn.
In 1496, she first married
Ralph Leigh, Esq., Lord of the manor of Stockwell in Lambeth, Surrey and together they had five children. The Leighs were a prominent family originally from Cheshire, England. Leigh was also Under Sheriff of London. From Joyce's first marriage came Isabel Leigh, born abt. 1495, who married Sir Edward Baynton, one of the largest landowners in Wiltshire. Their son Henry Baynton married Anne Cavendish, whose father, Sir William, was the ancestor of the Cavendish family, Dukes of Devonshire. This was through his marriage to Bess of Hardwick. Henry Baynton and Anne Cavendish had four sons, the fourth of which, Ferdinand born 1566, married Jane Weare and produced Anne Baynton, born 1602. Anne Baynton married Christopher Batt, gent., of Wiltshire and they emigrated to Massachusetts in 1638, where he became a prominent merchant in Boston. From them came many New England descendants. Ralph died in c.1509/10, and sometime between c.1513-1515 she married Lord Edmund Howard and together they had 6 or 7 children.
Their daughter, Margaret, married Sir Thomas Arundell, son of Sir John Arundell and Lady Eleanor Grey; Mary Howard married Sir Edmund Trafford; and one of their sons, Charles Howard, was known for
his misalliance with the King's niece, Margaret Douglas, the daughter of Henry's sister, Margaret Tudor, Queen dowager of Scotland.
