Hi Anneelaine,

The family name of the Duke of Norfolk, whose seat is Arundel Castle, is Fitzalan-Howard so I would say that it is very likely that if your friend is in some way descended from a Howard they are likely to be related to the the current Duke - Edward Fitzalan-Howard who is the 18th to hold that title. 

The family is the most prominent Catholic family in Britain and the Duke represents the Queen when it would not be appropriate for her as the Head of the Church of England to do so - for example I remember Edward's Dad, Miles (Duke until his death in 2002), went to Rome during the time when there were 2 Popes in quick succession in 1978.

I have quite a bit of information on the family  ;) and will have a look to see if I can place David Victor Howard in the family.

ADDED: I should mention that succession in the 20th C has not been straightforward - although Edward took the title from his father, Miles was second cousin or something of the previous Duke (Bernard), so your friend's relationship to the current Duke may be quite complicated!

Hi again,  :)

I have found the marriage of David Victor's parents - Charles Howard and Caroline Blanche Stevens at Pancras, London in Dec quarter 1901.  Unfortunately this means they are not together on the 1901 census.  However I did find them still in England in 1911, living in Kentish Town, London with 4 of their 5 children (the fifth has died).  Charles is a Grocer's Assistant.

James 8 yrs
Alfred 6 yrs
David 3 yrs - this is David Victor and he was registered also in Pancras district in the June quarter 1907.
Reginald 1 yr

I assume they must have gone out to Australia after this.

Tracking back through previous census entries suggests the family, at least during Victorian times, was of humble means. 

However throughout the 19th century they were living at Edlesborough (near Dunstable) - and this is significant because in the 17th Century the Howards had owned land there and also married into the Fountain family - I am only guessing here, but I would imagine that as the families were so large - as with most aristocratic English families, there were always some sons who ended up as ag labs etc and that David Victor Howard is descended from one such.

I am not sure who David's most recent common ancestor is that he shares with the current Duke of Norfolk - but I would probably be looking in the 16th / 17th centuries in.  ;D

The Dukes of Norfolk have been FitzAlan-Howard since the early 1800's.

The 13th Duke was Henry Howard (1791-1856); his children were all FitzAlan-Howard.

See:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Howard,_13th_Duke_of_Norfolk
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duke_of_Norfolk

So, it looks any link has to be before 1800?
