John Townsend of Oyster Bay, NY died in 1668 but was probably not born until about 1610. John's wife was Elizabeth but her maiden name is unknown. The origins of both of them are unknown. The Townsend Society of America would very much like to confirm who his father was but so far no candidate has been found.
Henry Townsend 1558-1625 is from the Norfolk, England family with totally different YDNA. This is the Thomas Townsend of Lynn line and that is who the Thomas in the will was. Brother Robert seems to have died with no further trace and sister Elizabeth is likewise not traced.
There is no connection to the Oyster Bay Townsends.
