Howard, Sir Edward, son of Thomas Howard, Earl of Surrey and second Duke of Norfolk, was born about 1470, and, having been created Lord Admiral of England, distinguished himself in 1510 by defeating and killing the celebrated Scottish privateer, Andrew Barton. In 1512 he fought an indecisive action with the French off Brest, and in the following year, in a second action in the same neighbourhood, he was killed. As Lord Admiral, his brother Sir Thomas, who in 1524 succeeded to the dukedom of Norfolk, followed him.
