Hintlesham Map Project
An exciting opportunity to take part in the preservation of a piece of our history! Of particular interest to the Estey branch, but a wonderful find for us all.
Exciting news from Janice C. Thompson of The Sarah Clayes
We are pleased, delighted, excited, humbled to report that
after close to ten years of effort, The Sarah Clayes House
Trust is finally the proud new owner of the Sarah and Peter
Clayes House in Framingham, MA.
In December 2015, the deed was passed to the Land Conservation
and Advocacy Trust, our fiscal agent. This means that we are
now free to pursue our plans to restore the property!
Congratulations to Janice who has tirelessly spearheaded this
effort throughout the years!

2017 England Tour Information
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.
