Parents

FatherMathew MEREDITH b. bef. 1745, d. ca. 1794
MotherLewisa (Lois) CALCUTT b. bef. 1750

Biography

Mathew MEREDITH was born bef. 1794 in Ireland. He married Ann DAVIS.
Mathew was named in his father’s will of 1793, and the order of names implies that he was the second son. He is believed to be the Mathew who emigrated to Prince Edward Island (now in Canada) in the early 1800s. He may have died in the 1825 Mirimichi (New Brunswick) fire as family stories are that he went to NB. There are no further records for him after that date.

He is believed to have been married to an Ann Davis, on the basis of the following announcement in the Freemans Journal, Tuesday, October 31, 1820, Page 1:
"I HEREBY Caution all Persons against giving credit to Ann Meredith, otherwise Davis, my wife, as I will not be accountable for any Debts she may contract; she having eloped from me from this place to Ireland, contrary to my direct commands. Prince Edward's Island, 6th June 1820. MATHEW MEREDITH."

This case excited very great interest, being the first of a number of similar cases, arising out of the last election, which came on for trial. The prisoner was a young man, and the son of a respectable landholder in the county; he was a Protestant and the deceased a Roman Catholic. After some challenging on the part of the prisoner, twelve Protestant jurors were sworn.”.
