Information on Henry Townsend

From "A memorial of John, Henry, and Richard Townsend, and their descendants", pg. 180:

Henry Townsend 1st must have settled in Oyster Bay before September 16th, 1661, as tlie Mill Grant bears that date, but he was not admitted as a townsman until the 4th of November.

(pg. 183) In 1683, he had six acres laid out to him, on the hill, upon which he built, and gave his old homestead to Henry. In 1668, he gave the mill, or three-fourths of it, to his sons, Henry and John ; the other quarter he gave to Rose, wife of Joseph Dickenson, who sold to her brothers, reserving one-fourth of the toll for himself and wife, during their lives. Henry sold his share to John. His son, Henry 3d, bought it again, but finally John's son, Jotham, bought it from Henry's sons, Henry and Absalom. Henry 1st gave land also to his three daughters.

His was indeed a most active old age, and, it is pleasant to think, after all the storms and contentions of his youth, a peaceful one. He died between February 6th and March 30th, 1695, when he must have been a very old man. He was buried on Mill Hill, where a rough stone, marked H. T., shows his grave. His wife survived him. She was Anne, daughter of Robert Coles.

Issue, Henry, John, Rose, Susannah, Mary, Elizabeth, Robert. Elizabeth died unmarried, September 13th, 1680. Susannah married Aaron Furman, Jr. She had two sons, Aaron and Jacob, who moved to New Jersey and Westchester, and nothing more is known of them.
