John Howland

William Bradford John Howland (February 23, 1673) accompanied the English Separatists and other passengers when they left England on the to settle in Plymouth. He was an indentured servant and in later years an executive assistant and personal secretary to Governor John Carver.

He signed the Mayflower Compact and helped found the colony. During his service to Governor Carver, Howland assisted in the making of a treaty with the Sachem Massasoit of the Wampanoag. In 1626, he was a freeman and one of eight settlers who agreed to assume the colony's debt to its investors in exchange for a monopoly on the fur trade. He was elected deputy to the Plymouth General Court in 1641 and held the position until 1655, and again in 1658. Provided by Wikipedia
