    Howitt was born into a wealthy Quaker family in Chigwell, Essex and originally took up drawing as a hobby. He befriended the artists Rowlandson and George Morland and his style is much influenced by the former, whose sister he married in 1779.  He rapidly dissipated his fortune however and took up drawing professionally, specialising in scenes of hunting and other countryside pursuits. He is probably best known for his illustrations for Williamsonís Oriental Field Sports published in 1808.
