Cashion Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Cashion Family History

Cashion Family History

The Cashion ancient family history was found in the archives.

Surnames developed a wide number of variants over the centuries. Many different spelling variations of the same name can be traced back to a single original root. Also, when a bearer of a name emigrated from Ireland it was not uncommon that their original name would be incorrectly transcribed in the record books upon arrival at their new location. Some names have dozens of spelling variations. Some Surnames were also altered over the years based on how they sounded phonetically, by their sound, and depending on the prevailing political conditions it may have been advantageous to change a name from one language to another. This was especially so in Ireland where most Gaelic names were 'anglicized' at some stage.

Variants of the name Cashion include Cassane, Cashine, Cashen, Cashon, Cassion, O'Cassin and Cassan. These names are anglicized forms of the Gaelic MacCaisin sept name.

A sept or clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory. It is also the case that many Irish septs or clans that are related often belong to a larger groups, sometimes called tribes. For example the 'Tribes of Galway' consisted of fourteen distinct families. The 'Tribes of Kilkenny' were ten families, etc.

These families were hereditary physicians in Upper Ossory and as early as the year 1304 the name is recorded in County Kildare and in 1331 in North Tipperary. The Hearth Money Rolls of 1666 indicated that families of the name were numerous in County Tipperary while in the Petty Census they were found to be numerous in County Leix. A notable bearer of the name was Conly Cashin who wrote a Medical Tract in Latin in the year 1667. Placenames indicating their settlement can be found at Ballycasheen near Killarney, and at Ballycashin in County Waterford. Some bearers of the name Cashion may also be of the O'Caisin sept of County Galway. The Cashion family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Cashion descendants.
