Notes for Samuel Henry Townsend

Under the Dunmanway heading on page 210 of Francis Guy’s County & City of Cork Directory 1875-76 there is an entry - "Townsend, Samuel Ardmartin". This could refer to Samuel or his very distant cousin Samuel Philip Townsend [6A11].

Samuel died in Cobh. Entry in the diary of Agnes Townsend [334] - 'March 4 1880 Sam H Townsend Queenstown died'.
