Notes for William Townsend

Alumni Trinity College Dublin from Co Cork and Kerry 1593-1860 in Dr Casey's Collection records that William was taught by Mr Tyndall of Cork before he entered Trinity College, Dublin, on 20 June 1685 aged 19 as a pensioner who paid a fixed sum annually for his studies. Mr Tyndall also tutored William's brother, Philip Townsend [106], before he entered the University at the same time as William.

William's will was proved in 1711 (1). He left his entire estate to his nephew 'John Fitz-Bryan of Castletown'. ''Pooles of Mayfield'' p.237 refers.
