      "Edward Ower and Elizabeth Halke wid: were married
      the 16th of May ___ 1644"
      When Elizabeth remarried it was to a first cousin of her first husband, their mother's being sisters.

      Not only was Elizabeth widowed in 1642, her mother-in-law's sister was married to an Ower, which may be how she met Edward, both suggesting it was this Elizabeth, but there was a Chancery Court case concerning the marriage settlement of this Elizabeth in 1657 and the plainttiff was one Edward Honywood. It seems too much to be coincidence. (This Elizabeth appears to have had an uncle Edward Honywood, her mother's brother, also a cousin with the name, son of her uncle Sir John Honywood - tree in online book)

      (I intend seeing the document, at present have just seen TNA catalogue entry).
