Cashel, Lord

Uncle and guardian of Fanny Wyndham, who, when she became an heiress, tried to break off her engagement to Lord Ballindine, and to persuade her to marry his own son Lord Kilcullen.

"....a man of about sixty-three, with considerable external dignity of appearance, though without any personal advantage, either in face, figure or manner. He had been an earl, with a large income, for thirty years; and in that time he had learned to look collected, even when his ideas were confused" - The Kellys and the O'Kellys.
