Genealogy research by Mark Humphrys,
to Sarah Rowan
[of Droumbegg, Co.Kerry, born est c.1702,
descendant of Edward III,
her mother was a Blennerhassett].
Think the Cashells only came to Co.Kerry through this marriage.
See "Cashell v. Rowan, 1729" in Ms 20610 in [Rowan Papers].
He is "Francis Cashell",
Deputy Clerk of the Crown, mentioned in the trial of the
Danish Silver Robbery 1731.
Hickson also lists him as "Francis Cashel",
Deputy Clerk of the Peace.
Hickson is wrong to think he is the brother of "George" who married Rowan.
Francis Cashel, Deputy Clerk of the Peace, certified the indictment of Thomas Hickson of Gowlane, who "seems to have conformed to Protestantism, to qualify himself probably for the appointment of Seneschal of the barony, which he held, but having betrayed his trust he was indicted under the name of Thomas Mac Robert Hickson of Gowlane for harbouring Tories and Papists". See "Hicksons of Fermoyle, Genealogical Notices" in [O'Kief, vol.5, p.455].
He must be "Francis Cashel" who subscribed to the book The Doctrine of Projectiles demonstrated and applied to all the most useful problems in practical gunnery, William Starrat, Dublin, 1733.
[Glin, 1972] thinks he may be the "Mr. Cashell" near Tralee, Co.Kerry, mentioned in letter from John Boyle, 5th Earl of Orrery to John Kempe, from Tralee, 27 Aug 1735. Extract: "I was wrong when I sent you Word, Magee's Farme was in Valencia: It is on this Side the Vast Mountain we cross'd over. His Lease is for ever, which makes me little sollicitous about a Dispute between him & Mr. Cashell for Land said to be mine. Tomorrow, I shall endeavour to settle some Disputes betwixt me & Colonel Hassett". (The latter is Col. John Blennerhassett, 1st cousin of Sarah Rowan's mother.)
Francis fl 1739.
He or his son may be "Francis Cashell", of Tralee, gent, admitted 1754 as [Freeman of Fethard].
He or his son may be "Francis Cashell", lieutenant in the Kerry militia temp 1756, in a regiment of foot under Col. John Blennerhassett. See [Ó Snodaigh, 1971].
Francis and Sarah had issue:
This Henry must be the same as the following, given the connections to Ballynevan, White and Greenhall.
Though our Henry is described as "of Bushfield" in 1763. Perhaps he only acquired it after 1760 and just before his death in 1763. Or perhaps this is his uncle Henry in the old home in Ballynevan, while the younger Henry is in Bushfield:
[Betham abstracts] says our Henry definitely has a nephew George Cashell, but it thinks our Henry might be the son of this Francis below. I think this is someone else. Note that [Betham abstracts] only draws this as a dotted line (he is unsure):

I have spent a great deal of time and money on this research. Research involves travel and many expenses.
Some research "things to do" are not done for years, because I do not have the money to do them.
