Notes for Elizabeth Townsend
In his journal covering the first 25 years of his life, written in 1869, Edward Hume Townsend  recorded that in 1811, after visiting his great aunt Helena Townsend [6B00] he travelled with his mother to Kinsale where he met for the first time his paternal grandfather. He wrote.....'My grandfather, the Rev Edward Synge Townsend was infirm on his limbs, the result of rheumatism from which he had long suffered. His face was handsome, the expression remarkably sweet; his eyes dark and expressive; his manner full of bonhomie. My grandmother, Elizabeth Townsend was a tall rather elderly woman; not as handsome as her husband but full of love and kindness.'
Was the Bridgemount estate part of Elizabeth's dowry? See the entry for her brother, Cornelius Townsend .
Elizabeth died at Kinsale.
