Notes for Bernard Hugo Uniacke Loftus Townshend
The April 1911 Irish Census records that Bernard, aged 5, was living at 46 Lansdowne Road, Dublin, a 13 room house, with his mother, his grandmother and brother, Walter. He is shown as Hugo in the census. None of his other brothers, aged between 10 and 15, are shown as they were presumably away at boarding school.
Bernard was appointed Assistant Keeper Second Class at the British Museum, Bloomsbury, on 12 June 1931 - London Gazette 33733 page 4448.
He died of peritonitis shortly after arriving in Johannesburg to visit his brother Freddy [5C16].
