Misc. Notes
Pg 241 Matthew the only s/o Thomas (Arundel-Howard20), 1st Baron Arundel, & Ann Philipson ... according to the English records disappeared or died after 1620. As there is some doubt about his death, it is not improbable that it were he who married Anne -- and departed for Virginia, still retaining the name Howard of his great-grandmother and which had been used at one time by his father and grandfather.71598
Research

Some claim that Thomas Arundell, never had a son Matthew, and this was a hoax.[Elizabeth TODD.FTW]3006
