Townsend (Whitehall)

The Townsend family in west Cork are descended from Colonel Richard Townsend, an officer in the Cromwellian army. His grandson, Samuel Townsend, settled on the Whitehall estate in the 1690s, after it had been forfeited by his cousin James Coppinger. In the 1870s Samuel Richard Townsend owned over 700 acres in county Cork. The property continued in the family's ownership until the twentieth century. See Townsend Family Records at
