Notes for John Townsend
Judge John FitzHenry Townsend  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 , emigrated to Canada in 1847, but died of typhoid (as did his wife Maria) very shortly after his arrival.
