Other information

Howard was the father of Auxilier Roy Howell. Born in Nova Scotia, Canada, he graduated from Victoria College, University of Toronto in 1914. He came to Britain with the Canadian Expeditionary Force during WW1, serving as a Quartermaster in the Canadian Forestry Corps. The unit was stationed at Starcross near Exeter and was employed felling trees at Haldon to provide timber for the trenches. They were often invited to the local large houses and it was here where he met his future wife. He married Muriel Neale in 1920, the sister of Mrs Ferrer Loveridge. They settled in Exeter and later moved to Lukesland in 1931.

Lukesland is still owned by the family and the gardens are open to the public at certain times.

He was a Justice of the Peace and very “correct” in his views.
