Welcome to the John Howland Society web site!
We are looking forward to the upcoming 400th anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrims in Plymouth. The Society is active in the organizations that are planning events leading up to and including 2020.
We are a very active society that maintains important historical properties and artifacts, some of which are listed below:
Our Registrar has been working hard to streamline our application process. We now have an application form that can be completed on our web site. If you have an approved Howland ancestor or an approved Mayflower application, you may use it for documentation for membership.
The Society has waved the application fee until 2020. We also have a new membership category “Friends of the Howland Society”. This is for people who are interested in the Society but do not have lineage to John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley. While working to gather the required documents for completing the application, lineage candidates can join as a Friend. When the application is completed, the membership status is converted to an Annual Membership.
