Cassidy’s and Britton’s of Fermanagh

My 2nd great grandfather Thomas Cassidy was one of three brothers, transported from Ireland to Australia in 1830 on Hercules III, for throwing their landlords horse off Belmore Mountain in Boho, Fermanagh. These projects are aimed at exploring the ancestry of their parents Stephen Cassidy and Catherine Britton.
