Edward was born in Essendon, Victoria, Australia. He raised stock in New Zealand for a short time before emigrating to California with his brother, Vernon Townsend , in about 1896. Following an argument with Vernon Edward left California and returned to Australia.
Edward died at Granville, New South Wales.
These details are drawn from a letter (1) dated 26 April 1975 from May Miller of Fullerton, California to Rose-Marie Townsend . Australian Government records show an 'Alan Cameron Townsend', whose father's name was Edward and mother's name was Mary Alice, coming from Granville District, Sydney and dying in 1936.
