Henry Howard made his first stage appearance as Falstaff in The Merry Wives of Windsor at Covent Garden on 22 April 1760. He acted only that one time, for Rooker's benefit, and though he should perhaps be classified an amateur and excluded from this dictionary, he evidently spent much of his time around the theatre and was typical of a number of semiprofessionals the theatres had to put up with. The Monthly Mirror in January 1801 remembered him: Mr. Henry Howard was a person extremely well known at the time .

On 4 August 1776 William Howard "Junior" was admitted to the Royal Society of Musicians, at which time he was described as a single man. He was the son of William Howard (d. 1785), also a member of the Society, and his wife Elizabeth. The younger Howard was in the band at the King's Theatre in 1783 and 1791 (and probably other years), and in May and June of 1784 he played first violin in the Handel Memorial Concerts at Westminster Abbey and the Pantheon. From 1790 on, he played violin in the St Paul's concerts in May.

The John "Howlds" who was one of the second violinists at the Handel Memorial Concerts at Westminster Abbey and the Pantheon in May and June of 1784 was surely John Howles. On 10 and 12 May 1784 John played tenor (viola) at the St Paul's concert, but in 1790, 1792, 1794, 1795, and 1797 he was listed as playing the violin. Doane's Musical Directory of 1794 stated that John played also at the Professional Concerts, in the oratorios at Drury Lane, and at Westminister Abbey. He lived at St James's Palace.
