Abstract

George Meredith (l777 - 1856) was born near Birmingham, U.K. & served as a
Lieutenant in the Marines until 1806 when he retired on half pay. He arrived
in Hobart in March 1821 with his second wife Mary (nee Evans, d. 1842) and
five children, and settled at Oyster Bay on the East Coast. Meredith established
grazing stock and crops and also a flour mill and tannery at the Meredith River.
In 1827 they moved to Belmont, a mile inland and in 18.36 Meredith built a new
home, Cambria, near their original settlement. Includes letters to his wife describing the journey via Prossers Plains and Richmond. - RS 35
