Townes Family Genealogy Forum
It is likely only a coincidence, but some years ago, I recall my mother telling me that one distant cousin won the Victoria Cross during WW1 at Vimy Ridge and another, "Bugs" Hyatt engineered a break from a Canadian penitentiary. I found the soldier, but never discovered anything about the inmate.
My great grandfather, George Townes was a British soldier who settled in south-central Ontario, Canada somewhere around 1875. I'm slowly looking into his background.
