Ellen living Molesworth St, Dublin, 1806 [King's Inns],

  1. Robert Cashel,

    Note that James Cashell was of the 31st Foot in 1807-11.
    Note that the 2nd Battalion of the 31st Foot was in Ireland 1807-08.
    Robert is not listed in 6th Garrison Battalion or 31st Foot in [Army List, Nov 1812].

    registered a batch of freeholders,
    think it is Fuller who refers to "Registry", 20th Aug and 11th Oct 1815,
    think this was burnt in Four Courts 1922, no register of Co.Kerry voters from this time seems to survive,
    there were similar exertions by other relatives of Rowan.

  3. Rowan Patrick Cashel,
    Rowan Cashel, or Cashell,
    3rd surviving son, born est c.1789,
    name Rowan comes from grandmother's family,
    name Patrick may come from great-grandfather Patrick Cashell,
    Jacobie O'Leary Cashel thought he might be Catholic, but this seems unlikely,
    killed a friend in a duel 1815,
    acquitted of murder 1816 amid great controversy.

  4. At least one other son, Cashel.
