Entry by (Albert) Keith Cashman at 23/12/2018. Conceived at Oatlands Tasmania, born in Leichhardt, Sydney, Christened at St Peters Church Oatlands, lived from first memories at Oatlands, then Butlers Gorge (first school but town obliterated by greenies but dam is still there), then Whitemore (one room school, Mc Culloughs owned the shop/post office/ petrol pump opposite the school and ironically years later my mother married a brother of this family), then Sprent (with Nan and Pa Cordwell on a farm and went to school there, then to Burnie, Trugganini Street Montello (primary and secondary schooling). Ended up in RAAF Jan 1961at 16 1/2 years old (ID A 61317), lived in Wagga Wagga outskirts at airforce training base at Green Hills (I think it was called) Trained as a Transport Fitter/Mechanic apprentice), lived at Tottenham stores depot, Sale RAAF base and then township after marriage to Katherine Hermes, then Tindal RAAF base under construction at Katherine (My daughter Kara was conceived there), then Penrith with work at Villawood maintenance depot (Kara Leigh born at Penrith hospital), lived in RAAF housing at Warrick Farm then (first house purchased at Wrench Street, Cambridge Park (near the fence to the Munitions Factory) where I worked as a refrigeration mechanic after leaving the RAAF and after moving to Burnie Tasmania for a short stint where I tried to start a business and began drinking after work, this caused the first really first step of our marriage break up (My fault entirely). Kathy met a lover at the munitions factory where she also worked for the Army, and so began the saga of our marriage breakdown which dragged on for about 2 years. A terrible time of being deceived by someone you loved, but I probably deserved it after the Tasmania episode. Moved back to Tasmania after marriage split, and lived at mothers new husband Lloyd Mc Cullough's farm before moving to Launceston, boy boarding with us at Penrith because he was kicked out of home (Ronald Sant) at the time for 2 years, married Kathy and they proceeded to have 3 more children, all girls I believe. Moved back to Sydney by transferring from James Hardy factory in Launceston to one in Milperra (PVC pipe extrusion shift manager at both locations. Lived in my caravan at my aunty Maries house in St Johns Park, Sydney until I found a unit in Fairfield (Sydney). I had expected to spend time with my daughter from this move but I was confronted by Kathies mother, father, new (but probably going on for longer than I knew) partner Sant, and Kara. Told that school felt it better if I did not see Kara as it would interfere with her schooling (she was only about 11 at the time). I put the question to Kara but I am sure she was already primed to say that she agreed with them so I did not see her for about 18 years. She had requested the Salvation Army to find me and they traced me to Beach Road Bondi, Sydney where I was living with Helen Donald at the time in a horrible relationship (again). I moved to Haberfield, Sydney for a short while as I managed a Midas Muffler shop there. I moved to Gosford after obtaining a factory management position at Donald Clarks (since sold by James Hardie) at Hornsby. I moved from Gosford to Noraville, Toukley NSW after buying a house with Helen Donald still giving me hell. Once again lost the house (number 2) with break up that finally happened when I moved into my next wife-to-be's house at Gorokan after being introduced to Janice by my back neighbor at Noraville who new both of us and our pathetic circumstances. I purchased acreage at at Warnervale and lost it to Janices son Wayne after a lot of problems with him and a failing relationship with his mother. Divorced again and after renting for 2 years managed to purchase a home in my own name. Lived at this address at 5 Glading Close for 2 more years, paid the house off (I had run a successful consultancy business for 20 years.) I then met some one that I never thought I would ever do after what I had been through and she has turned out to be my Soul Mate, she manages to dismiss my bad points and smooth over any bullshit I put her way. Her name is Gina Vukelic and is of Hungarian and Croation parents and born in Appatin in Serbia. At the time of writing this I am 73 years old, have a good partner and everything I could ever want. I still suffer from bouts of real depression but I have to remind myself that I am really well off and need to just appreciate what I have in these late years of my life. Although alcohol has caused a lot of my miseries it has also been my escape route to my difficulties in life which have been many. I have never become an alcoholic as I am too stubborn to let anything rule over me so with my weaknesses I also have strength so I guess they balance one another out over time. My re-connection with my daughter did not work out very well. We had both grown up apart and the gap will never be mended which saddens me. My current will favours Gina even though we are not married but I think I have been fair in my allotments to Kara and my two grandsons in that they are relevant to weakness of our family connection.

Photo sent to Keith of family up to Linda including birth dates of family members by Ruth.

Looking through the G2G page I noticed that there is a line of Cashman's from Germany formerly known as Kirschemann. Fran Cashman already alluded to this but gave no details so until now I was puzzled about the 2 different lineages.

When Cyclone Tracy hit Darwin at Christmas in 1974, 66 people died, 70 per cent of homes were destroyed and the city was denuded. But Territorians vowed to rebuild their homes and lives. Smith Street from Cashman's Newsagency © 1974 photograph: Baz Ledwidge; 2014 digital montage: 105.7 ABC Darwin/John Donegan

Baz Ledwidge's view of Smith Street on Christmas Day in 1974 emphasises the chaos wrought by Cyclone Tracy: cars parked innocently the night before are strewn with - and destroyed by - signage, roofing and fencing. The original photograph was taken outside Cashman's newsagency in Smith Street. While Smith Street has transformed from a main road into a pedestrian mall, Cashman's remains, although the business has moved a few doors along since the first photo was taken. See image uploaded.

Ancestry - Cashman Family History.

Early Origins of the Cashman family

The surname Cashman was first found in Counties Kerry and Cork (Irish: Corcaigh) the ancient Kingdom of Deis Muin (Desmond), located on the southwest coast of Ireland in the province of Munster.


Last name: Cashman SDB Popularity ranking: 1344

This extraordinary surname recorded as Casman, Casmon, and possibly Cashen, is Irish, and specifically from Counties Waterford and Cork. Its derivation is from the pre 10th century Gaelic O'Ciosain, a Kerry surname more normally recorded as Kissane or Cussane. Although the precise translation is uncertain, the first nameholder, the chief of the tribe, was probably the head tax collector for the area, the basic word "cios" means a tax or tribute, either that or the tribe lived by their own rules and "extracted" tributes from all who ventured onto their lands! The spelling as Cashman is an anglicisation from the 16th century, and it does suggest that the nameholders were aware of the original meaning of their name.Unfortunately the majority of the early Irish registers were destroyed by the IRA in 1922 during the Irish Civil War. Surviving recordings include examples such as John Shey Cashman, who married Nora McKinley at Cork on June 26th 1843, and Mary Cashman, a girl of fifteen, who left Cork on May 21st 1846, on the ship "Liberty", bound for New York. This was in the first year of the infamous Potato Famine, 1846 - 1851. The first surviving recording in Ireland may be that of William Cashman, a witness at St Nicholas church, Waterford, on June 20th 1814.
