Abstract:

"Howell was employed in a number of occupations after leaving school in 1843: plough-boy, mortar-boy, and apprentice shoemaker, to name but three. This shoemaking apprenticeship introduced Howell to politics and led him to find both Chartism and Methodism; these beliefs would stay with Howell as he moved to Bristol in order to become a shoemaker. Howell practised the art of public speaking while delivering lectures on temperance and the Master and Servant Act; however, his career as a shoemaker lasted less than a decade before he left the shoemaking trade for the bricklaying trade in 1853. Bricklaying led Howell to move to London in 1855 and it was there that he met and married Dorcas Taviner, she gave birth to his son in 1859. It was also through living in London that Howell would meet George Jacob Holyoake, Charles Bradlaugh, E.S. Beesly, Frederic Harrison and Karl Marx. The Nine Hours Dispute of 1859-1862 led to Howell associating with key union figures such as William Allan, Robert Applegarth, George Potter and Edwin Coulson. Howell's talent for debating and organisation led to his representation of the London Bricklayers at the Derby Conference of January 1961 and his election to the strike committee in March. Howell's political rise continued as he was elected on to the Executive of the London Trades Council in 1862 and was appointed Secretary weeks later. In 1864 Howell attended the General Council of the International Workingmen's Association. Howell also became the Secretary of the Reform League in April 1865, he then became its only full-time paid official as the organisation swelled to 400 national branches. Between 1869 and 1876 Howell was involved in a number of political reform-based organisations, including the Liberal Registration and Election Agency and the Labour Representation League. After facing defeat in the 1868 Elections as a Candidate for Aylsbury, the latter 1860's saw Howell attend the Trades Union Congress in 1868-69 and create such a postive impression that he was elected to the TUC's Parliamentary Committee. Howell's work with the Parliamentary Committee whetted his appetite for Parliamentary politics. A combination of having the right contacts and the financial support of Samuel Morley and Thomas Brassey enabled Howell to stand for the seat of North East Bethnal Green in 1885; his victory in the 1885 election was then repeated in 1886 and 1892. In 1897 Howell's finances had deteriorated, he sold his extensive library of books to raise money to live off and friends of Howell's including Robert Applegarth, organised a generous testimonial which raised £1,650 to support his retirement."--Collection metadata screen.
