Biography

Richard MEREDITH was born ca. 1675 in Wales. He and Anne BROWNE were married ca. 1700. He died in 1752 in Ireland.2
He is described in different sources as either the 2nd son or the 3rd son.

According to Burke’s Landed Gentry of Great Britain and Ireland, Richard, having married a niece of Edward the 2nd Lord Herbert of Chirbury, was sent to manage the estates in Ireland, a fair proportion of which was settled on him. However, it appears that Richard’s wife Anne Browne was a granddaughter of the 2nd Lord Herbert. Moreover, a memorial of a deed of 1724 describes the sale of the estates in Ireland by Lord Herbert to William Browne, Anne’s father, in 1656. Anne inherited the estates as the sole heir of her father, which then came into the possession of Richard Meredith through his marriage. The deed also names three children, Richard, William and Anne, and the imminent marriage of his son Richard to Honora Fitzgerald.2,1,3,4
