Family - Howard-Sneyd Connection

The Howard-Sneyd Connection

Note the discontinuity in generation, as a result of Henry Howard (né Howard, devenu§ Howard-Sneyd on 27 Apr 1950) remarrying in his fifth decade. His son Tom seemed less like a half-uncle, more of a cousin, to my wife Sonia and the other grandchildren of Millicent.

To judge from their footprint on the internet, the Howard-Sneyds are a highly educated and eminently successful strand of society, dedicated in their livelihoods to the more rarefied reaches of the economy – beyond the crystal sphere of mediaeval cosmology, one might say.

§ The Sneyd affix was added to Henry Howard's surname (by Royal licence), and had in fact been his mother's maiden name. This arrangement was in fact the precondition of an inheritance, as it perpetuated a surname which would otherwise have been extinguished (see the Sneyd Connection).
