Tralee, Co.Kerry

Stephen Cashell of Tralee

The following is interesting because of the name "Agnes" (which is a name in our family), the name Letitia, and the name Hassett.

Stephen Cashell and his wife Agnes Noonan appear among the list of Defendants in two cases at the Exchequer Court of Equity, both dated 4 June 1804.
From here in Exchequer Court of Equity Bill Books.
See full size, which has other notes.
Also has a Letitia Noonan among the Defendants, and her mother Catherine Noonan. This may be sister and mother of Agnes Noonan.
Also refers to Blennerhassett. Think this may be the solicitor.

Strand St, Tralee, Co.Kerry

Listowel, Co.Kerry

Bedford House, near Listowel, Co.Kerry

These seem to be related to Cashel of Shallee and New Zealand.

George Cashel,
or Cashell,
of Bedford House, Galey par, just N of Listowel, Co.Kerry.
See entry on Mark Russell's family tree.
At mar he is described as of "Ursa" (unidentified), Co.Kerry.
He mar 16 June 1806, near Edinburgh, Scotland, to Grace Wilson [dau of John Wilson and Margaret Sym].
She was sister of Prof. John Wilson of Edinburgh.
See marriage notice in Belfast Commercial Chronicle, 23 June 1806.

Grace died 20 Feb 1835 at Tivoli Terrace, Cork.
See Limerick Chronicle, 25 Feb 1835 and Belfast Newsletter, 6 Mar 1835.
George is living Tivoli Terrace, Cork, as at his dau's insanity in 1835-36.
"George Cashel" of Listowel (could be his son) is invested with new Commission as magistrate for Co.Kerry in 1838 [Limerick Standard, 12 June 1838].
"George Cashell" of Listowel (could be his son) is listed as magistrate in [Pettigrew and Oulton's Directory, 1846].
George and Grace had issue:

  1. George Cashel, eldest son,
    of Bedford House, Co.Kerry.
    He is probably George Cashel of Tivoli Terrace, Cork, who mar 1836 to Susanna Lawrence [dau of Samuel Lawrence of Silvermines, Co.Tipperary].
    We assume this is the son, and Susanna died, and the 1840 marriage is his 2nd marriage. But it could also be the widowed father getting married again in 1836.
    See notice in Limerick Chronicle, 23 April 1836.
    Marriage to "Susanna Going Laurence" in 1836 recorded in [Diocese of Cork and Ross].
    Note there is later an 1883 deed linking the Going family to Cashel of Shallee, Co.Tipperary.

    George mar (maybe his 2nd mar) on 15 Feb 1840 [Limerick CoI cathedral parish records] to Jane Anne Franklin.
    See [Limerick Standard, 18 Feb 1840].
    See [unknown Nenagh newspaper, 22 Feb 1840].
    See notice in unknown Limerick newspaper, apparently 15 Feb 1840, from Mark Russell's family tree.
    Jane Anne was dau of Capt. John Franklin, 90th Regiment, of Greenhills, Co.Limerick.
    Greenhills is just S of Lemonfield, near Kilpeacon, Knocknagaul par (just S of Limerick), Co.Limerick.
    Jane Anne was as at 1840 the widow of Richard Sherlock, 62nd Regiment.
    She apparently emigrated to New Zealand in 1866.
    The Southern Cross, 6 January 1866, shows the arrival at Auckland, New Zealand, of "Jane Ann, Richard, Grace and Elizabeth Cashel".

    Probably the same as:

    George Cashel, or Cashell,
    listed as of Rose Land, Listowel area, Co.Kerry, in [Slater's Directory, 1846],
    had issue:

    1. a son and heir, Cashel,
      born July-Aug 1843, "Roseland Cottage" [Kerry Evening Post, Sat 5th (NOT 3rd) Aug 1843, [KCL] RR microfilm],
      (todo) see [Freeman's Journal, 10 Aug 1843].

    2. a son, Cashel, born Aug 1844, "Roseland" [Kerry Evening Post, Sat 24th Aug 1844, [KCL] RR microfilm].

    Could be the same as:

    George Cashel, or Cashell,
    listed as of Barraduff, Lisselton par, NW of Listowel, Co.Kerry, in [Griffiths Valuation, 1852], or 1851,
    had issue:

    1. a dau, Cashel, born 23rd Oct 1854, at "Barraduff Cottage" [Kerry Evening Post, Wed 1st Nov 1854, [KCL] RR microfilm].

  2. John Wilson Cashel,
    2nd son, born 1819.
    He died 23 Jan 1838, Abbey Street, Dublin, age 19.
    He died after a silly accident while balancing on a chair.
    See Kerry Evening Post, 27 January 1838.
    See [Limerick Standard, 30 Jan 1838].
    See Belfast Commercial Chronicle, 5 February 1838.

  1. Janet Cashel, eldest dau,
    mar May 1840, Listowel church, by the Rev. Dawson Massy [Limerick Standard, 18th May 1840],
    think NOT at Camas, Co.Limerick,
    to George Purdon Bevan [relation of Cashel/Cashell of Bushfield, Co.Tipperary].

  2. Margaret Cashel.
    She suffered from insanity starting in Sept 1835. She was suicidal.
    She was put in a lunatic asylum.
    A friend of hers complained this was done to her, and there was a controversy about it. See CSORP file.

See p.1 and p.2.

The Mountcashel area, N of Sixmilebridge, Co.Clare

This Cashell (or Cashel) family seems to be from the area of Sixmilebridge, Co.Clare.
They seem to be from Ballynevan, Kilfinaghta par, N of Sixmilebridge.

It may be a coincidence, but beside and close to Ballynevan are the following:
