of Capponellan, in the county of Kilkenny, by
Mary.f his wife, daughter of George Stoney, esq. of
Grayfort, in the county of Tipperary, who, on marry-
ing the Countess of Strathmore, assumed the surname
of Bowes. (See page 184.) By the heiress of Lau-

Head, esq. of Ashley Park, in the county of Tipperary, by Phoebe, his wife, sixth and

major of the Queen's County Militia, burgomaster of Maryborough, and is the oldest
acting magistrate for the county. He served the office of high-sheriff in 1783.


The family of Cassan, or De Cassagne, is
of ancient French lineage. Douglas, in his
Baronage of Scotland, page 296, under the
article Spens Destignots, Lords of Destig-
nots and St. Germain, (a branch of Spens,
of Lathallan, descendants of the house of
the great Macduff, Thane of Fife,) on the
authority of documents in the archives of
the Senescalliat des Lannes, names the
Cassagnes, as " Lords de Montagu," and of
Bonthon, and calls them " a family of dis-
tinction in the province of Bearne," anterior
to the year 1509, at which period we find
them, according to the same historian,
forming alliances with some of the most
ancient of the French Noblesse, and es-
pecially with the house of Spens.

Stephen Cassan, of Montpelier, born in
1659, passed at the revocation of the edict
of Nantes, into Holland, and in 1689, being
then an officer in the foreign brigade, com-
manded by Schomberg, went to Ireland,
where, in i692, he married, as appears by
the records in Ulster's Office, Elizabeth,
daughter and sole heiress of Joseph Shef-
field, esq. of Navestock, in Essex, and of
Cappolv, (since called Sheffield, to mark
the descent of the Cassans from the Shef-
fields) in the Queen's county, and in con-
sequence of this alliance, the family of
Cassan, by authority and license from
Ulster, now quarter the armorial insignia of
the ancient houses of St. Liz, Sheffield, and
Greene, (see families of Sheffield and St.
Lyz, at foot.) Stephen Cassan died 1750-1,
aged 92, seised of all the estates which had
been granted to his wife's father, Joseph
Sheffield, by the crown 22nd March, 1667,
19th CHARLES II. (refer to the 15th report of
the Commissioners, respecting the public
records of Ireland, printed by order of the
House of Commons, p. 102). He had an
only son,

Mwihi-w Cassan, esq. his successor at
Sheffield, born in 1693. This gentleman
inherited likewise his mother's property at
Navestock, which he sold while at the
Temple ; he built the present mansion at
Sheffield, and is the same Matthew Cassan,
who occurs as residuary legatee and ad-
ministrator to his cousin, John Sheffield, of
Navestock, nephew of Joseph, his maternal

grandfather. He m. first, Ann, daughter of
Jonathan Baldwin, esq. of Cool Kerry, and
