Gerald West's study of the Howard family of Tottenham and Ackworth offers an illuminating perspective on how particular religous convictions, once adopted by some family members, can spread throughout and bind the kinship group.

The Howards were longstanding Quakers and were at the leading edge of science early in the nineteenth century - Luke Howard was the first to classify clouds and his nomenclature remains with us; and his son, John Eliot Howard, greatly advanced the pharmaceutical processes that made quinine widely available for medical use. West's narrative, which is grounded in extensive research, focuses on key members of the family as they made the transition from Quaker commitment in the eighteenth century to the Brethren movement in the 1830s and 1840s.

It illustrates the role that extended family played in the development of thought and cultural practice in nineteenth centruy Britain and it sheds light on the development of evangelicalism during that century, as refracted through the lens of this branch of the Howard family. Gerald West was an architect, City liveryman and a leader among the Open Brethren in the late 20th century.
