My name is Robert Cassidy
and I started this site.
The Cassidy line of my family goes back to Peter Cassidy dob 1824 in Ireland. I have traced my family back to Sunderland, England; Scotland, UK; and Ireland. I can be contacted by email: firstname.lastname@example.org and I welcome any queries.
The Barns line of my wife's family goes back to and beyond the first fleet's arrival in Australia. There were 3 convicts (Saltmarsh, Phillips & Hollogin) on the 1st Fleet, 1 convict (Butler) on the 2nd Fleet, 1 convict (Stevens) on the 3rd Fleet; and 2 other convicts (Wise & Willington) who arrived on subsequent convict ships. The Barns (note there is no "e" in Barns) family has a rich history. We have found early relatives in Tasmania and South Australia; and later relatives in Queensland, including Gympie and Brisbane.
