Categories: Peter Bonaventure, sailed 1635.
He is NOT related to the Townsend family of Oyster Bay, Long Island, NY despite some online genealogies linking them. He is often confused with a different James Townsend of that family. See http://www.wikitree.com/g2g/14708/you-have-verification-john-townsend-being-henry-and-margaret.
He emigrated Apr 1635 to the Virginia Colony, on The Peter Bonaventure from London to Virginia.
