Notes for Richard Townsend
Nothing further is known about Richard except that he was a barrister. He is not shown in 'An Officer of the Long Parliament' but is shown in Burke's Irish Family Records 1976 and by John FitzHenry Townsend  in his pedigree.
Page 318 of Francis G Tuckey's "Tuckey's Cork Remembrancer" records that 'Richard Townsend' was High Sheriff of County Cork in 1807; there is no supporting evidence to show that this refers to Richard - it could equally apply to four others named Richard , ,  and [6A00] or to someone from another family. On balance of probability it is most likely Richard Townsend .
