[1] Casey: Of this family was Thomas Casey, who, about A.D. 1658, sailed from Plymouth, England, and landed in Rhode Island, U.S. America. He was married to Sarah ————-, and had three sons:—1. Thomas, 2. Adam, 3. Samuel. General Silas Casey, of the late American War, was a descendant of said Adam; and Henry-Samuel Casey (living in 1886 in Colborne, Ontario, Dominion of Canada) was a descendant of the said Samuel. In 1783, the Canada branch of this family went thither from the States, where their property was confiscated on account of their allegiance to British principles.
