Mereweather/Merryweather's from Sedgehill
« on: Saturday 29 February 20 10:05 GMT (UK) »
Hi
Segehill           Mereweathers/Merryweathers
I have a pretty good tree for my ancestors going back to John Meryweather (various spellings) (1773-1824) /George Mereweather (1795-1868)/Lot Merryweather(1824-1905)/Paul Merryweather(1851-1943)/William G Mereweather (1883-1973) who was my maternal grandfather.
Beyond William details are a bit sketchy, yes I have all the dates etc but little info on their lives.
I just wondered if any one might have any detail on any of them.
Lot's brother Mark had a son Frank who went to America and had a number of children, I am pretty sure there was an Australian link as well but haven't come across it yet.
Grateful for any help.
Bob

Thanks for responses, I'll certainly post as suggested.
I'll have another trawl through the newspapers.
Regards
Bob

Is it just the Mereweather line you are interested in as I have a huge amount of information about the Broadway family (Ruth Broadway married Paul Mereweather so I assume she was your great Grandmother)

Thanks for response. As you say Ruth was my great grandmother. It is the Mereweather line that is my main interest, I would be interested if you have anything relating to Ruth from the time she married.
I know that they lived in Newbury, Gillingham and I have looked at the census, electoral and Kelly’s records so have all the basic stuff but nothing much else.
Thanks again for interest.
Bob

Hi Bob, no my information is more about the Broadway family rather than Ruth after her marriage. I am tracing every descendant of William & Frances Broadway of Motcombe, Dorset who married in Salisbury in 1731. One of their daughters, Grace, married John Mereweather of Sedgehill in 1780. Ruth was the great granddaughter of Grace’s sister Christian Broadway (married name Green) and the great grand daughter of Grace’s brother William Broadway jnr . Ruth’s mother, Arabella Green was Christian’s grand daughter and she married William Broadway, William Broadway Jnrs son. It gets very complicated.
