--------------------

THOMAS1 TOWNSEND was born in Warwick, England and died at Lynn, Massachusetts 22 December 1677. He was made freeman at Lynn in 1639. He is thought to be the father of the three Townsend brothers, John, Richard and Henry, who were early settlers on Long Island (Savage). That they were brothers is certain: Elizabeth, widow of John, says in her will that she is acting with the advice of her husbands two brothers Henry and Richard Townsend. but the Memorial makes no mention of Thomas. Because of the large difference in ages between John and his younger siblings it seems logical to suppose Thomas had two wives.
