Where did the Irish Cashion family come from? What is the Irish Cashion family crest and coat of arms? When did the Cashion family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Cashion family history?

The Cashion surname comes from the Irish Gaelic Mac Caisín, or O Caisín.


Spelling variations of this family name include: McCashin, McCashen, O'Cashin, O'Cashen, O'Casheon, Cashion, Cashin, Cashon, Cassin, Cassion, McCashion, Mccashney, McCashon, McKasshine, Keshin, Casheen, Casain, Kasain, McCassin and many more.

First found in Munster, where they held a family seat as Chiefs of the Dalcassian race. Irish history, after the Norman Conquest of England, was strongly influenced by the invasion of Strongbow in 1172. Many Irish clanns, sept names were intermixed and family groupings became almost indistinguishable.

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Juvant arva parentum
Motto Translation: The lands of my forefathers delight me.
