Daniel Wait Howe, Howe Genealogies, 2 vols., ed. Gilman Bigelow Howe (Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1929), is the standard work on every major Howe family in New England. (The Howes family of Yarmouth, which does not appear to be connected with Howe families from other parts of Massachusetts, had been treated well before.) This lineage is treated in the first volume, which covers the descendants of John Howe of Sudbury and Marlborough.
