On 29 Jul 1673 [his father] Craven Howard 1649-1700 (24) and Anne Ogle 1652-1682 (21) were married.

John Evelyn's Diary 1675 July. 15 Jul 1675. Our cause was pleaded in behalf of the mother, Mrs. Howard and her daughters, before Baron Thurland (68), who had formerly been steward of Courts for me; we carried our cause, as there was reason, for here was an impudent as well as disobedient [his father] son (26) against his mother, by instigation, doubtless, of his wife, one Mrs. Ogle (23) (an ancient maid), whom he had clandestinely married, and who brought him no fortune, he being heir-apparent to the Earl of Berkshire (60) [Note. The reference to heir apparent is incorrect insofar as Charles Howard 2nd Earl Berkshire 1615-1679 (60) having a younger brother Thomas Howard 3rd Earl Berkshire 1619-1706 (55) who did inherit the Earldom]. Craven in line to inherit in the event the 2nd or 3rd Earl didn't have issue which proved to be the case but Craven had died by that time so his son Henry Bowes Howard 4th Earl Berkshire, 11th Earl Suffolk 1686-1757 became the 4th Earl. We lay at Brickhill, in Bedfordshire, and came late the next day to our journey's end.
This was a journey of adventures and knight-errantry. One of the lady's servants being as desperately in love with Mrs. Howard's woman, as Mr. Graham (26) was with her daughter (24), and she riding on horseback behind his rival, the amorous and jealous youth having a little drink in his pate, had here killed himself had he not been prevented; for, alighting from his horse, and drawing his sword, he endeavored twice or thrice to fall on it, but was interrupted by our coachman, and a stranger passing by. After this, running to his rival, and snatching his sword from his side (for we had beaten his own out of his hand), and on the sudden pulling down his mistress, would have run both of them through; we parted them, not without some blood. This miserable creature poisoned himself for her not many days after they came to London.
