Cashine or Cassin family crest

(Crest No. 234. Plate 13.)

THE Cashine family is descended from Milesius, King of Spain, through the line of his son Heremon. The founder of the family was Muiredach, or Mulrooney Mullethan, King of Connaught in the seventh century and of the line of Duach Gallach, first Christian King of Connaught. The possessions of the clan were located in the present County of Galway. The Cashines were chiefs in the Six Sodhans, a large territory in the barony of Tiaquin, in that county.

Among the representatives of this family in the United States, may be mentioned Mr. Thomas Cassin, of Brooklyn, N. Y.
