I have some Howden kin from Lothian as well.I can't imagine there were too many of them up there...
My line starts in 1690 with a James Howden marrying Elizabeth Hogg.His son Robert (b. 1710) had a son John (b. 1735) who married Margaret Tait). John's son Robert (b. 1776) married Mary Kay. Robert's son James married Jane Johnston.Most of the clan settled in Galashiels, Scotland
