  • Notes 
    • James Cassidy was a plasterer to trade. He was a journeyman which meant he had served his apprenticeship and mastered his craft but was not bound to serve one master but hired by the day. He did quite a bit of moving around while he was alive. From 1863 to around 1869 he lived in Selkirk. The family then moved to the North of England for around five years before moving back to Bridgeton in Glasgow. The Cassidy's have lived in Glasgow for 158 years. They originally settled in Bridgeton and then later moved to Dennistoun both places are in the east end of the city.
      In the 1861 census James and Ellen had been married six years and were living at 5 Summer Street Bridgeton with their daughter Ann aged 3 months and Ellen's cousin Mary Ann Rice who was working as a cotton mill worker and newly arrived from Ireland. They also had boarders living with them. Margaret McCartney aged 17 a mill worker, James and William Brittain aged 21 and 44 resepectively and Christopher McFadgen aged 36 a Cotton Spinner. All the boarders were unmarried except Christopher who was a widower from Ireland.
