Has it been finally proven that said Thomas of Lynn was directly descended from the Townsends of Raynham Hall?  Also was his father Henry the one who starts the ancestrial journey back to Raynham?  My closest decendent is Susie May Townsend of Maine (my husband's grandmother) and in my Townsend tree I have her as a decendant of the Raynham Townsends which I researched thru many collections on the Society site and thru ancestry.com.  I think I have submitted this a few years ago when I joined the Society.  I just want to finalize that my tree is correct for my grandchildren.  Thanks to anyone who answers this query.

This is a curiosity question.  Are you a Cross from LA?  My grandmother is Mary Inez Cross from Monroe, LA?  Jim Townsned

Dear Liane,
I was just on to vote in our TSA 2014 election and saw the question by Elizabeth Cross which is also very pertinent to me: "Has it been finally proven that said Thomas of Lynn was directly descended from the Townsends of Raynham Hall?  Also was his father Henry the one who starts the ancestrial journey back to Raynham?"
You replied to her directly, and I wonder if you would please share an answer with me? I would very much like to be able to document this line back over the pond.
Sincerely, James Mace
