Abstract

Index to the papers of George and Mary Ann Meredith and family and of John and Maria
(Hammond) Meredith and family of Cambria, Swansea Tasmania. The Meredith family arrived in March 1821 and, having heard there was good land at Oyster Bay, a small party set
out in a boat to explore the district of Oyster Bay. They found the land not as good as reported but made
selections which were granted. George was granted 2000 acres on a rivulet of the Swan River and another
1000 acres at Jericho. With a large family to support, and more expected, Meredith developed many business
interests and spent much of his time travelling between Swansea, Jericho and Hobart, leaving his family to
tend the property. He also took an interest in public affairs and was connected with a newspaper for settlers
