Richard Casey [Parents] was born in 1613/1616 in St. Mary, Shandon, Co. Cork, Ireland. He died in Warrisquick City, VA, USA. He married Nancy Jane Ricketts about 1640 in Virginia City, VA, USA.

First Casey-ancestor in America.

Was transported by Justin Cooper on the ship Truelove out of London, Robert Dennis, Master, to Virginia City Sept. 16th 1636, together with 19 others: Nicolas Man, John Curtis, John Corker, Henry Ranciful, Clement Evans, Henry Bonny, James Smith, George Stacy, William Redman, George Archer, William Bannister, WIlliam Cooke, Samuel Elridge, William Nosse, Mary Clinton, Jno Davis, Robert Radge, Richard Smith, William Underwood and Mary Quarterly, 7 (W) (1) 286.

Granted 1050 acres in Warrisquick City, Virginia (VA), USA.

Col. Donald E. Casey,compliant of the Casey family genealogy, believes that Richard would be classed as a representative figure, rather than a prominent one. Like so many Irishmen of this time, he came to Virginia during the colony s crucial half century, and in the new world found a home and founded a family. The headright method of making land grants was adopted soon after the colony was getting started. It was probably in this manner that Richard Casey obtained his land, it being thoroughly characteristic of those times. (Col. Casey found no evidence that Richard was indentured.) It was this system that enabled Richard Casey and many men like him to acquire property they probably could never have possessed otherwise.

Many of those brought over were poor Irishmen and women (some of them of good families, but with meager fortunes and prospects) who were unable to pay the six punds Sterling, the average fare then charged for the transatlantic voyage.

Richard Casey and Nancy Jane Rickets are thought to have had nine children, but only four survived to maturity: Nicholas, James, Mary Ann and Peter.

Nancy Jane Ricketts died in Warrisquick City, VA, USA. She married Richard Casey about 1640 in Virginia City, VA, USA.
