Thomas (of The Oak) MEREDITH1

M, #1282, b. about 1762, d. 11 February 1844

Parents

Biography

Thomas (of The Oak) MEREDITH was born ca. 1762 in possibly Queens County, Ireland. He married Anne. He married Susannah WILKINSON, daughter of William WILKINSON, on 17 Apr 1805 in Coolbanagher, Co. Laois, IrelandG. Thomas (of The Oak) MEREDITH married Susanna WILKINSON, daughter of James WILKINSON and Rebecca, ca. 1817. Thomas (of The Oak) MEREDITH died on 11 Feb 1844 in Ballyfin Church of Ireland, Queen’s Co., IrelandG.
He is assumed to have been the son of John Meredith who was recorded as a Freeholder in Clonenagh in 1761, but no documentary evidence has been found to date.

Thomas Meredith of "The Oak" is said to have had three wives, names unknown, according to stories passed down by descendants. In one version, he is said to have had 21 children, but if so, several have not yet been identified. The only records that unequivocally refer to Thomas are (i) marriage records for some of his children (i.e., those which identify their father's name as Thomas and indicate they lived at The Oak), and (ii) the death announcement in 1844, transcribed below. It may be that his children were baptised at Ballyfin, which register only begins in 1825.

We assume that the family stories are correct and that Thomas did have three wives. Despite the lack of definitive information, we can build up a reasonable picture of who his wives and children might have been, through various assumptions and by using the results from DNA analysis of descendants. The Irish naming convention (whereby the first and second-born sons and daughters were named after paternal and maternal grandparents) is particularly useful, as it was in common use at that time in the Meredith families. Also, the location of Oak was sometimes referred to as Clonegown in the early 1800s, and so the baptisms, marriages are burials that refer to Cloneygown in Clonenagh parish can be assumed to relate to the Oak.

The picture that we arrive at is that the first wife of Thomas was called Anne, and that she died in October 1804, having had five children Anne, John, William, Maria and Samuel. She may have been the daughter of Thomas Pattison, although the evidence is very circumstantial.

His second wife is assumed to have been Susannah Wilkinson, daughter of William Wilkinson of Cappakeel, who was recorded in the Coolbanagher parish records as having married a Thomas Meredith of Clonenagh on 17 Apr 1805. She is thought to have died sometime after the birth of her 6th child ca. 1812, as there is a gap in the sequence of births following that date.

Finally, the naming convention leads us to believe that his third wife was also called Susanna, and analysis of autosomal DNA tests suggests that she was also a Wilkinson, the daughter of James and Rebecca Wilkinson, and the sister-in-law of Thomas’s son John by his first wife. Twice widowed with nine or more children, it was perhaps an arrangement dictated by circumstances. She died in 1833 aged 48.

Thomas Meredith was recorded in the Tithe Applotment Books of 1829 at ‘Forrest Omoores’ in Queen’s Co., as the tenant of a large holding of nearly 120 Irish acres (nearly 200 modern acres). His surname was spelt as ‘Merideth’.

HIs death was announced in the Leinster Express (Saturday, February 17, 1844, page 3):
“Awfully Sudden Death - On Sunday last a respectable farmer named Thomas Meredith, residing at the Oak, near Mountmellick, attended divine service in the Church of Ballyfinn. During the service he was seized with apoplexy, and in a few minutes expired. He was a fine hale old man, aged about 82 years, and up to the hour of his death was in the enjoyment of excellent health.” The Maryborough parish register burial records show a William Meredith of Cloneygown age 82, buried February 13th, 1844, which surely must be the Thomas of the newspaper article.2

Biography

Susanna WILKINSON was born ca. 1785. She married Thomas (of The Oak) MEREDITH, son of Early Clonenagh MEREDITHS, ca. 1817. She was buried on 20 Jun 1833 aged 48.
It is speculated that Thomas’s 3rd wife Susanna was a daughter of James and Rebecca Wilkinson, and therefore a sister-in-law of Thomas’s son John by his 1st wife. There is some uncertainty over the dates of birth of her children - the only baptism record extant seems to be for Edward.

Thomas (of Iry) MEREDITH1

Parents

FatherJohn MEREDITH b. ca. 1760
MotherEsther HILL b. ca. 1762, d. 1850

Biography

Thomas (of Iry) MEREDITH was born ca. 1800 in Ireland. He married Frances THOMPSON. He died on 9 Aug 1880 in Clonenagh parish, Queen's county, Ireland.
Thomas Meredith was a resident of Iry, Clonenagh Parish, Queens County, when his presumed daughter Catherine Anne married in 1846. However, the Griffiths Valuation for Iry (1850) shows Thomas Meredith holding slightly more than 89 acres of land without any buildings on it. Valuation records show that land held by Thomas was later passed on to Edward. In the absence of a baptism record, it is assumed that he was the son of John Meredith and Esther Hill.
