    (See RichardC Townsend from pages 297-8.)

    Greene writes, “It is tempting—and quite possibly true—to suggest that Anne Arnold became RichardC Townsend's wife (the names Anne and Agnes were then interchangeable). Note, however, that the reversion of Heywards was granted to Richard Townsend ‘and such wife as he should marry,’ not necessarily Anne Arnold. Nevertheless, it seems a reasonable speculation that Anne Arnold and Agnes (—?—) Townsend are identical and that Stephen Arnold(s) was RichardC Townsend's father-in-law.”

    Also, their son “Stephen is tentatively placed in this family because of possibility that RichardC Townsend's wife Agnes may have been a daughter of Stephen Arnold.”
