Godfrey Howitt was educated at Mansfield and tutored by his brother William before becoming a doctor at Edinburgh University. He married Phoebe Bakewell the following year, on 6 April 1831, at the Friends' Meeting House in Castle Donington. He practised medicine in Leicester and in Nottingham was honorary physician at both the City Infirmary and the General Hospital.
In 1842 Godfrey and his wife lost their youngest son, baby Charles, whose death was recorded in the letter written by the eldest child, John Henry to his cousin Alfred, still in England at the time. John Henry, whose health had always been precarious, survived his youngest sibling by less than a year and in 1843, Godfrey and Phoebe suffered a second, bitter loss. When Godfrey died 4 December 1873 in Caulfield he was survived by three sons and a daughter.
