Towne Family Association, Inc.


Welcome To Our Website!

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.

TFA members visiting England this year donated money to repair and conserve the Will and Inventory of Alice Perkins. A video was made showing the process involved. Click for more information and a link to the video.
