James Howard (dramatist)
He was the eighth son of Thomas Howard and Werburge Kirkhoven, daughter of James, Lord of Heenvliet, Holland, and grandson of Theophilus Howard, 2nd Earl of Suffolk (1584–1640), and Elizabeth Home (d. 1633), daughter of the earl of Dunbar. Howard wrote two comedies, All Mistaken, or the Mad Couple, (c.1667), and The English Mounsieur (1666). Both of these starred Nell Gwynn, the mistress of Charles II.
