Edward How (c. 1702 – 1750) was a British officer, diplomat and member of the Nova Scotia Council. He was married to an Acadian. In the 1730s, How rebuilt Fort William Augustus at Canso, Nova Scotia. During King George's War he fought in the Siege of Annapolis Royal (1744) and was later wounded and taken prisoner in the Battle of Grand Pre. During Father Le Loutre's War, a Mi'kmaq militia assassinated him shortly after the Battle at Chignecto.
