Notes for Edward Townsend
Edward's date of birth is taken from an entry, in contemporary writing, on the fly leaf of a copy of 'The Christian Pattern or Imitation of Jesus Christ' - London 1707. 'Pooles of Mayfield' p. 237 refers.
An entry in the Church of Ireland Parish Records of Ross Cathedral 1690–1823 records on page 34 under the heading 'Christenings' - "1763 7br 11th Robert son of Mr Edward Jones of Droumbeg received into the Congregation. Mr Edward Townsend, Mr Thomas Hungerford, Mrs Mary Sealy and Mrs Baldwin sponsors." This presumably refers to Edward Townsend  rather than Edward, who would have been 78 in 1763. Drombeg, 1.5 miles east of Glandore, is one of the most visited megalithic sites in Ireland.
