It was a bit of a rainy day today, so I have done a bit of work on the HOWES family Group after feedback on the website from Stephen HOWES who is a descendant of that family.
With information from Steve, it looks like the family moved from Kings-Ripton from nearby Buckworth in the old county of Huntingdonshire (now Cambridgeshire).
I must put the effort in to index the church records for Huntingdonshire.
