One of the brothers bought out some children, if Lawrence was one of the children then it may mean that the geneology comes from the three original brothers. Prior to the mid 1850's all entries into Australia went via the Sydney route so early records for Van Deimans Land (Tasmania) may be held in the New South Wales records offices. That is how the three Cashion brothers were located. From what I can gather one brother was a convict and wrote home and told the others how green the land was, and how cheap. Being Irish land was esteemed and the other two came out soon after the first one! This information comes from the Cashion - Cooper family geneologist here in Tasmania.
