            • found: Oxford DNB online, 27 June 2014 (Edward Howard, novelist, was baptized on 20 March 1793 in Reading, where he was probably born; in 1808 he joined the HMS Aurora and served at least two years; he left the service a lieutenant; his novels and short stories drew on his naval experiences; in 1833 Frederick Marryat made him sub-editor of his Metropolitan Magazine; the semi-autobiographical "Life of a sub-editor" was first serialized there in 1834; it was broken off in 1836, but published whole with a fictional ending as "Rattlin, the Reefer" that year, in which he also became editor of the Magazine; only Marryat's name, as 'editor', appeared on the title-page of the novel, which was extremely successful; his next novel "The Old Commodore" (1837) was less popular; none of his subsequent nautical novels repeated Rattlin's success; he died 30 December 1841 in London; his "Sir Henry Morgan, the Buccaneer" (1842) was published posthumously and critically acclaimed)
