Ernest Jones Townson is my Great Great Grandfather. He worked as a pianist before the war. I also have a list of all his children, birth and deaths as well as causes. However I would love to learn more.

Hi Tony / Janis.

I believe Cork was also my great great grandfather.

My branch come from his son Morrison.

If you google Townson of Cornwall my dad put together some of the family tree.

My great grandfather was also called Cork and was interested to know where the first name came from.

Regards

Scott Townson
