Heyward Townshend

Hayward (Heyward, Heywood) Townshend (ca. 1577 - before 1603) was Member of Parliament for Bishop's Castle, Shropshire, England, in 1597-1598 and 1601. His parliamentary diary, first published in 1680, covers both of these Parliaments, and is one of the fullest available records of proceedings in the 1601 Parliament.
