EXCITING NEWS!!!

Lois Hoover’s prize winning book Towne Family, William Town and Joanna Blessing- Salem, Massachusetts- 1635-Five Generations of Descendants, has been reprinted. Click here for more information and to order.

Welcome to the Towne Family Association, Inc. site, dedicated to the descendants of William Towne and Joanna Blessing, who were married at St. Nicholas Church on April 25, 1620. Six of their children, Rebecca, John, Susan, Edmund, Jacob, and Mary were baptized there. After emigrating to Salem MA, two additional children, Joseph and Sarah were born. Rebecca (Nurse), Mary (Esty) and Sarah (Bridges Cloyse) were victims of the witchcraft hysteria of 1692. A plaque commemorating this family, donated by TFA hangs in St. Nicholas Church. On September 4-12, 2012, TFA members toured ancestral sites in England and held our 32nd annual meeting in the church itself. Plans are underway for another visit in 2017.
