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.
