Biography

William (of Rossnagad) MEREDITH was born ca. 1800. He married Esther. William (of Rossnagad) MEREDITH died on 12 Jun 1887 in Rosnagad, Queen's Co., Ireland.1 He was buried on 14 Jun 1887.
William Meredith was a farmer at Rossnagad, Queen’s County. He had 11 children. William's first son was named Thomas suggesting that his father was also a Thomas. It is believed that he was a son of Thomas of The Oak, and DNA evidence gives some weight to this, but there is no documentary proof.

Descendants of Richard W. Meredith and his wife Ellen Lane have a photo said to be of Richard's father William Meredith of Cappagh. They also have family records indicating that Richard was from "The Oaks," supporting the theory that William was a son of Thomas of The Oak.
?He was registered as a voter in Maryborough East on 25 June 1839. According to the Griffith’s Valuation he was farming 131 acres at Rossnagad in 1850.
