That seems to be him .
I found James Howard in 1861 with James and Bella,  in Poulton,  but  none of them after then.
Thanks.

That's interesting,  so he might have still been a seaman when he died.

He wasn't a seaman, his probate states he was a publican, I wonder why probate was dealt with London.

I am researching the Litherland family of Lancashire ,  one of whom went to Australia. The letter page  is in the possession of one of that family still there  and was found after the death of someone who was known to have been interested in the FH.   
 Only one page exists  (2) and there are  no other details. It`s known that the person who sent it  many years ago is a descendant of  James Howard  and  it was a reply to someone  of the Lancashire family trying to find other Litherlands from England who were in Australia.   
 
 It was sent  well before the days of internet etc, so using phone books and sending letters was the only way of contact. 
We were wondering   if the JB Litherland was part of the same family as the Lancashire Litherlands.

It`s amazing that we have found so much in a short time. Thanks everyone .
Hope that answers your question.  :)
