    Notes 
    • Rev FREDERICK CASSIDY was born in December 1812 on a Sunday, probably the 6th (6th or 16th, but 16th was not a Sunday) at 3.0 am, and baptised on the 19th. He did not get an army commission in 1833 aged 20, and got a BA from Trinity College Dublin in 1838; according to Mrs Barbara Cassidi in England.
      He was the 4th son of Rev Mark & Henrietta (ne้ Jackson) Cassidy.
      He died at Motueka on 4 August 1890 aged 77, buried 7 August in Motueka Public Cemetery.
      He married Martha Brown c1846 (1846-47) in Donegal Ireland. There is a family story that she was a family maid and that he was "defrocked" for eloping or for conducting the ceremony himself. But there is no church record of any "defrocking".  A 19 September 1989 letter from the Representative Church Body Library of the Church of Ireland in Dublin gives the only information they had for him that he was a Curate at Dromara in 1844.
      He was a Church of Ireland minister (like his brother William). In New Zealand he used the title "Rev" but was not a practising minister. He is in the 1881 Motueka electoral roll as a "Gentleman", and in the 1887 Motueka electoral roll as "of no occupation". [1]
