  • Notes 
    • Tweedy confuses him with his brother George. P. 69/70 The Dublin Tweedys - Owen Tweedy

      The confusion can be corrected based on the following:

      Married Jane Rutledge and is the Meredith who returned from Antigua. Per the memorial a deed in 1746 RD#126392 that clearly lays out the relationship between his wife and his elder brother Thomas.

      One recorded memorial of an instrument dated 9th October, 1770 records that a lawsuit was pending in the high court of chancery in Dublin. In this action, Henry Meredith and Thomas Hillas were plaintiffs and John McKenzie, Margaret McKenzie 'otherwise' Stinson and Joseph Meredith the son of Margaret were defendants. In the suit, John McKenzie and Margaret McKenzie gave up their suit and the rights and title to the lands in Sessuecommon, Sligo to Henry Meredith and his lawful heirs. The memorial also noted that if Henry should fail to produce a lawful heir the lands of Sessuecommon should revert back to 'Joseph Meredith now in Antigua.'
      It is very likely that the Henry Meredith noted in this is the same Henry who was the Governor of the fort at Winnebah or his father also named Henry. It would explain various familial problems with the brothers and sisters of Henry and his brother Richard Duke Meredith the apothecary in Dublin, who had, according to his sister, usurped Henry's property.
