President General Henry Coggeshall Howells IV


Welcome and thank you for visiting the website of the Descendants of Sheriffs and Constables of Colonial and Antebellum America. We are a society of men and women who are descendants of law enforcement personnel prior to 1861 in any area that became the United States of America.

We invite you to browse our web site. The About Us and the Scholarship sections will provide more detailed information about the Society. The Membership portion of the web site lists many of the eligible categories of law enforcement. The Ancestors tab lists those ancestors already recognized by the Society.

Inquiries about joining Sheriffs and Constables are greeted with enthusiasm and we warmly welcome prospective members. Should you wish to honor and memorialize your law enforcement ancestor go to the Contact Us section located under the Membership tab. The Registrar General will respond to assist you in becoming a member of Sheriffs and Constables.

Again, thank you for visiting our lineage society web site. Hopefully you will wish to honor an ancestor by joining Sheriffs and Constables.

With lawful intent,

Henry C. Howells
President General
