  • Notes 

    • Harriett's name is sometimes spelt Harriet. Her 1891 marriage entry gave her occupation as domestic and both her present and usual residence as Orewa.
      The notebook of Henry Bartlett, builder in Wainui area 1890s notes: Materials supplied to Mrs Howell - most likely Harriet, as the same page notes making of coffin for Howell's baby on 30 Nov 1895 (Frances Ida Allingham): Twill 1s 10 1/2d; Lace 5 1/2d; Tacks 6d; Nails 1s.
      Harriet is in the NZSG Index of the First Women Electors in New Zealand (1893). A page in the Silverdale School Jubilee Book notes: "Howell, Harriet, Wade, Domestic Duties".
      Harriet was probably the sister of the Brunton brothers who owned a 3-gabled building on a prominent site in Wade (Silverdale), which was in 1996 the site of Gregory Ford (car dealer).
      Harriet's death Notice in the NZ Herald read:
      "On July 5 1923 at the residence of her daughter Mrs J.[?] Olberg, 5 Regina St, Grey Lynn, Harriett, dearly loved wife of William Howell, Upper Waiwera, 51 years. Funeral will leave above address for O'Neills Point cemetery tomorrow (Saturday) at 12.45."
      Harriet's burial inscription is: "Hetty, wife of William HOWELL, d. 15 July 1923 aged 52 years"
