Notes for Aubrey Lewis Hume Townsend
Aubrey was born in Tunbridge Wells and was a teacher in Norwich, where he met and married Norah Alicia Winter.
Sometime prior to 1914 the family moved to Nakuru, Kenya to grow coffee. Aubrey was a mechanically skilled craftsman and had an extensive moth collection, which was bequeathed to the museum in Nairobi when he died of a heart attack in about 1960.
After Aubrey died Norah, who lacked domestic skills but was a keen philatelist, moved to South Africa with her son, John Patrick Townsend and his family.
