About Elizabeth Townsend

History and Genealogy of the Cock, Cocks, Cox Family: Descended from James and Sarah Cock, of Killingworth Upon Matinecock, in the Township of Oyster Bay, Long Island, N.Y.

By George William Cocks, John Cox

Compiled by George William Cocks

Published by privately printed, 1914

JOHN (2) TOWNSEND, (prob.) son of Robert and nephew of Thomas of

Lynn, to have been a member of the Boston Artillery Company 1641, must have

been at least twenty-one years of age, and to have had his second son baptized

at Manhattan In 1642, counting the usual two years' interval between births of

children and the probability of an Intervening or preceding daughter, would suggest

a marriage date prior to his emigration from England, perhaps 1630, and

his birth about 1610. He died at Oyster Bay about 1668, ?aged about 60 years.

His wife, Elizabeth, as given In Savage's Gen. Diet, was dau. of Robert Coles of R. I.

Thompson's Hist. L. I. repeats the error, qualifying by saying "Robert

Coles was of a respectable Irish family, and an associate of the younger Win-

throp In the settlement of Ipswich, Mass." Robert Coles had no dau. Elizabeth,

nor is it believed that there were any of the Coles family seated In Ireland until

after Robert's migration to America. In the Townsend Memorial it is stated, "

his wife was Elizabeth Montgomery." Dr. Peter Townsend's mss. History states

that "the widow of John Townsend In 1683 was regularly visited at her mansion

in Oyster Bay by her countyman and supposed relative, the then Irish Governor

of the Province of New York, Thomas Dongan."

John Townsend dying Intestate, his widow with advice of her husband'»

brothers and consent of her older sons, divided the estate ; for account of which

very Interesting matter see "Memorial of the Townsend Brothers," p. 87, et seq.

She d. Oyster Bay. Nov. 29, 1684, and was laid beside her husband on ground

since known as "Fort Hill."
