I was told by a french friend that Cashion was french, a variant of cashier - or banker. I told her the family was Irish and she said that perhaps some Cashiers had settled in Ireland after Charlemange raped and pillaged the UK and the name became Cashion (perhaps someone wrote the surname down with an elongated "r" once and it was misread as "n"). That is what I have been told.
