             Biographical note 
             Born in England in 1810, Henry Caswall became in 1830, the first graduate of Kenyon College, Gambier, OH, to be ordained a priest in the Protestant Episcopal Church. In 1834 he was named Professor of Sacred Literature at the Theological Seminary of the Diocese of Kentucky in Lexington. His son Robert Clarke Caswall, a priest of the Church of England, came to the United States in 1871 and first served parishes in Maine and Canada. He later worked with African Americans in Tennessee and in 1899 became Archdeacon of Colored Work in the Diocese of Lexington, Kentucky, establishing a Sunday school and kindergarten for the Black children of St. Andrew's Church. One of his daughters, Muriel Caswall, was a member of the editorial staff of the Boston Post. 
         
         
             Scope and Contents note 
             The Caswall family papers contain materials concerning the Reverend Henry Caswall, his son the Reverend Robert Clarke Caswall and Muriel Caswall, Henry's granddaughter. Correspondence from Caswall to his family in England describes early nineteenth century life in Ohio and Kentucky. Included in the collection is a New Testament Bible from 1821 and a Book of Common Prayer from 1864. Also included are documents that reflect Henry Caswall's service as priest for the Episcopalian church. There are pictures of family in England, Ireland, and the United States from the mid nineteenth century through the mid twentieth century.
