"The Township of Townsend is inland, being separated from the lake by Woodhouse. It is bounded by Walpole on the east, Oakland on the north, and Windham on the west" "The first settlers of Townsend came in from the south. The Culvers were the first settlers of the township... they were followed by the Beemers and the Sovereens. Immigrations went on, but slowly... The north eastern part of the township was not settled until about 1830"
