Charles Meredyth of Dublin, Solicitor

Charles Meredyth (c1783-1850) was a Dublin Solicitor and Attorney at Law. He was listed in various Dublin trade directories from 1812 to 1846 in Jervis St., Abbey St., and Marlborough St. He was the only son of Charles Meredyth, a Cabinet maker of Glasnevin, who is thought to be the son of Thomas Meredith and Catherine Ducros from the Huguenot du Cros family that settled in Dublin. The descendants of Thomas and Catherine are shown on this Indented Chart.

The surname for this family line appears in the records mostly as Meredyth or Meridyth, and less frequently as Meredith. I have adopted the spelling that appears to have been most commonly used for each person.

He was listed in various Dublin trade directories of 1868 and 1870 in Plunket St. The business was carried on by his son Patrick Meredith in Francis St. until between 1901 and 1911.
