Notes for John Townsend

Judge John FitzHenry Townsend [250] shows that John went abroad and was not heard of for many years. Reputedly, he returned to Ireland in 1874 having become a lawyer and County Court Judge in California. He is also said to have changed his name to O'Brien.

John's first cousin, Richard Townsend [335], emigrated to Canada in 1847, but died of typhoid (as did his wife Maria) very shortly after his arrival.
