Many Townsends are interred in one of the historic cemeteries in the Township of Oyster Bay, Nassau County, New York. In 2007, the Town of Oyster Bay Historian John Hammond, (himself a Townsend descendant), compiled a monograph of information pertaining to these cemeteries based on sources found at various archival repositories. A downloadable copy of his work, "Historic Cemeteries of Oyster Bay: A Guide to Their Locations and Sources of Transcription Information" can be found here and on the Town Of Oyster Bay website.

For the past four years, the East Hampton Library Long Island Collection has given serious, dedicated attention to one of its important collections, the Townsend Family Papers. Comprised of numerous manuscript letters, deeds, and the voluminous business records of this prosperous Oyster Bay, N.Y. merchant family, it’s the latter material, specifically the business records of son Robert Townsend, that are best known to researchers of the famed Culper Spy Ring, George Washington’s professional, secret intelligence gathering operation in New York during the British Occupation in the American Revolutionary War. Through diligent digitizing, cataloging, transcribing and useful tools, we have made this fascinating and important information accessible and, it is our hope, more readily understandable and usable to everyone. The reader will not only find innumerable names, products, prices and other glimpses into 18th century life just before, during, and immediately after the Revolution, but the painstaking research and explanatory guidance of arcane accounting & bookkeeping methodology, colonial currencies conversions, and much more.
