Henry Cassady was the first mayor of Kingston to be born locally. His United Empire Loyalist family members were among the earliest settlers of Kingston. A lawyer by trade, Cassady mentored many of the next generation of prominent barristers through his law office. Cassady held the position of mayor for only six months before dying in office.
