Russell Family Correspondence 1670-1754 [Mrs S C Lomas of the Historical commission prepared this report on the manuscripts of Mrs Frankland-Russell-Astley of Chequers Court in Buckinghamshire, pub in 1900. The collection was divided into three groups: 1. Russell and Frankland correspondence 1657 to 1697; 2. Cutts and Revett papers 1687 to 1708; and 3. Col Charles Russell's letters 1742 to 1754.
Sir John Russell was married to Frances, dau of Oliver Cromwell; their dau Elizabeth married Sr Thomas Frankland. Their son John Russell, governor of Fort William in Bengal, married as his second wife Joanna (neice of Lord Cutts) wid of Col Edmund Revett; and John's son, Col Charles Russell married Col Revett's dau, Mary Joanna. The largest part of this collection is the correspondence of Col Russell, of the 1st Regiment of Foot, and later the Coldstream Guards, soldiering the the Netherlands] via FONS Russell family owned Chequers Court in Buckinghamshire for several generations now the country retreat of serving Prime Minister.

Ghent 27 Nov 1742 'Poor Merriden has gone, and at the last tried to insinuate that it was more our dispprobation of him than his dislike to us which was the cause of his leaving, but I reminded him that the first week he came he found fault with everthing we did. Berkeley scarce knows how to contain his joy for having so good a riddance of him':
Ghent 23 Feb 1743 - 'We had a pleasant joourney here in the trachachuter, and found Merriden and Collier ready to receive us' :

He called to a favourite quarter master and gave his thirty ducats to take care of, which if he dropped was to be his own: he had near eighty pounds more in his pockets, which were all stript. In short the regiment behaved very ill and did not follow their officers, so that upon the latter's being obliged to retire, having none of their men to charge with them, they all suffered so much Merriden received his shot in the back of his ??? and dropped at once.'

Hanau 2 Jul 1743 'poor General Clayton was stripped and plundered, as well as poor Merriden, and Major Honeywood was the same, though not dead, and who now is thought to be out of all danger.

[The Battle of Dettingen 1743 http://www.britishbattles.com/battle_of_dettingen.htm
Battle: Dettingen
War: War of the Austrian Succession or King George’s War.
Date: 27th June 1743.
Place: Dettingen was fought in South West Germany on the North bank of the Main river some 70 miles East of Frankfurt and 3 miles West of Aschaffenburg.
Combatants: The Pragmatic Army comprising British, Hanoverians and Austrians against a French Army.
Generals: George II, King of England and Elector of Hanover, Earl of Stair, Marshall Konigseck, Duc D’Ahremburg, General Ilton (Hanover). The French were commanded by the Duc de Noailles and the force that crossed the Main was commanded by the Comte de Grammont.
Size of the Armies: 70,000 French and 50,000 British and allied troops.

Winner: Pragmatic Army
British Regiments: The following British Regiments hold Dettingen as a battle honour:
The Life Guards, the Blues and Royals, the Queen’s Dragoon Guards, the Royal Dragoon Guards, the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, the Queen’s Royal Hussars, the Grenadier Guards, the Coldstream Guards, the Scots Guards, the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment, the King’s Regiment, the Devon and Dorset Regiment, the Royal Anglian Regiment, the Light Infantry, the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, the Royal Highland Fusiliers, the Royal Welch Fusiliers and the Duke of Wellington’s Regiment.
The following British regiments fought at the battle:
3rd and 4th Troops of Horse Guards, 2nd Troop of Horse Grenadier Guards, Royal Regiment of Horse, King’s Horse, 7th Horse, Royal Dragoons, Royal Scots Greys, King’s Dragoons, 4th, 6th and 7th Dragoons, 1st, 2nd and 3rd Foot Guards, 3rd, 4th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 20th, 21st, 23rd, 31st, 32nd, 33rd and 37th Foot.
Account:
The Battle of Dettingen is a highly significant victory for the British Army, being the only time in modern history that a British Force has been led into battle by a reigning monarch: King George II.
Although ostensibly fighting to preserve Flanders from the predations of Louis XV’s French armies, the British army’s presence on the Continent from 1742 was as much to preserve the independence of Hanover; King George II being Elector of Hanover. The British force constituted part of what was known as the “Pragmatic Army”; comprising British, Austrian and Hanoverian troops.
In early 1743 the Pragmatic Allies were at a loss how to use their army against the French. Finally, late in the campaigning season and at George II’s insistence, the Pragmatic Army march south to Frankfurt am Main and occupied the area to the West of Mainz on the Main River. The King intended that the army’s presence should influence the election of the new Archbishop of Mainz, an elector in the Holy Roman Empire and therefore of importance in the affairs of Hanover

The Pragmatic Army marched from Flanders during May 1743 and encamped at Aschaffenburg, around the village of Klein Ostheim. A large French Army under the Duc de Noailles occupied the South bank of the Main to the West.
The generals were; the Earl of Stair, in nominal overall command, the Duke D’Ahrenburg and Marshall Neipperg commanding the Austrians and General Ilton commanding the Hanoverian contingent.
On 19th June 1743 King George II, the King of England, joined the army, amid a flurry of celebrations and salutes. He brought with him a considerable retinue, conveyed by an enormous column of carriages and some 600 horses that paralysed the local roads for days, and his younger and favourite son, William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland, a major general in the army. Over the next few days George attended church services and functions in Mainz in anticipation of the election of the new archbishop.
The situation of the Pragmatic Army deteriorated dramatically when the French cut the route by the Rhine and Main Rivers by which the army received supplies from its Flanders base. There had been no proper supply of bread for a week, when finally on 27th June 1743 King George ordered the retreat to begin; West along the road to Hanau and Frankfurt and then North to Flanders.
The road lay along the north bank of the Main River. Within 3 miles, King George II’s army would pass through the village of Dettingen, where several marshy brooks flowed into the Main.
As the Pragmatic Army marched towards Dettingen, advanced parties reported that the French occupied the village, blocking its path. During the night the French, commanded by the Duc de Grammont, had crossed the river, using bridges of boats across the Main, and held the village and the marshy ground between Dettingen and the hills in strength.
The presence of the French took the Pragmatic Army entirely by surprise. How could such a large force have been in complete ignorance of the presence of the enemy on its own side of the river within 10 miles of its camp?
Preparing to give battle, the British, Austrian and Hanoverian troops formed line; the Main River on the left and the wooded Spessart Hills on the right. The regiments took from 9am to midday to form up. This extraordinary length of time must have been due to the inexperience of the regiments and the difficulty of moving from a column of march into battle line.
No doubt there was considerable anxiety at the predicament in which they found themselves. The Duc de Noailles’ plan was, while the Duc de Grammont held the line of Dettingen and the streams preventing the Pragmatic allies from continuing their march, to hurry a section of his army along the south bank of the Main and cross at Aschaffenburg in their rear. They would be caught between the two forces and perhaps forced to surrender; King George becoming a French prisoner.
As the British regiments formed to face the French in Dettingen they watched Noailles’ troops on the far bank marching towards Aschaffenburg. After a hurried consultation the Pragmatic commanders dispatched the British and Hanoverian Foot Guards in haste back towards Aschaffenburg.
The French batteries on the south bank began the battle, opening fire across the river as the marching French troops cleared their front. The bombardment was directed at the British cavalry moving along the North bank
It is said that de Grammont’s clear orders were to stay in Dettingen and force the Pragmatic Army to attack him. If this is so he disobeyed. As the British, Hanoverian and Austrian completed their line the French advanced out of Dettingen to the attack.
Casualties:
British: 15 officers killed, 250 soldiers killed, 327 horses killed. 38 officers wounded, 520 soldiers wounded, 155 horses wounded.
Hanover: 177 killed, 376 wounded.
Austria: 315 killed, 663 wounded.
French casualties: 8,000 (not a reliable figure but the best available)
Follow-up: Once the battle was over the Pragmatic Army continued its retreat to Hanau and in due course returned to its bases in Flanders. The British casualties were left on the battlefield for the French to look after if they felt inclined.]

2064 WILLIAM MERREDEW, WILLIAM HURDSFIELD, theft : simple grand larceny, 6th May, 1818.
The Proceedings of the Old Bailey Ref: t18180506-103

Trial Summary:
Original Text:
841. WILLIAM MERREDEW and WILLIAM HURDSFIELD were indicted for stealing, on the 13th of April, 35 yards of flannel, value 35s. , the goods of Humphrey Sexton .
HUMPHREY SEXTON. I am a haberdasher, and live in Bethnal-green-road. On the 13th of April, about half-past seven o'clock at night, I was called down, and found my flannel taken from the door.
SARAH ADAMS . I am the prosecutor's servant. I was coming from the mangler's, about half-past seven o'clock in the evening, and saw the prisoner, Hurdsfield, take the flannel, and give it to Merredew - I called my master; I lost the men. I am sure Hurdsfield is one. I am not quite certain of the other.
JOHN TWEEDY . I am a headborough of St. Luke's. On the 13th of April, I was standing in Golden-lane, about half-past eight o'clock at night, and saw the prisoners come down Cowheel-alley, into Golden-lane; Merredew had a bundle under his arm. I took Merredew, and asked him what he had got? he said it was flannel; it was rolled up in two aprons. He said, if I would go with him he would shew me where he got it from. I took him to the watch-house. Hurdsfield was outside the door; I sent for Prince. When he saw Prince he ran away; I took him about a fortnight after. I am sure he was with Merredew.
JOSEPH PRINCE . I am an officer. I was sent for, and found a knife on Merredew. As we were taking him to the watch-house, the gang came up and said, "I wish you luck!" and attempted to rescue him.
(Property produced and sworn to.)
HURDSFIELD'S Defence. I have not been to Bethnal-green-road these twelve months.
MERREDEW'S Defence. A gentleman gave it to me to carry to Aldersgate-street.
MERREDEW - GUILTY . Aged 28.
HURDSFIELD - GUILTY . Aged 33.
Transported for Seven Years .
Second Middlesex Jury, before Mr. Recorder.
A bit of discrepancey with his age Old Bailey Index shows him as 20 and the Old Bailey transcript shows him as 28 in 1818.
And the 1828 cenus in NSW shows him as 31.

The possibilities I have eliminated by the fact that they all appear to be in this country during the period 1818 - 1828
1. William bn 1796 Stapleford son of John Merridew and Mary Pearce marries in 1819 to Sarah Ware at West Stour, DOR
2. William bn 1796 Winterbourne Stoke son of William Merridew and Elizabeth Axford and marries Sarah Merridew at Enford in 1816 and in having children in Winterbourne Stoke in 1816, 1820

2084 Would appear to be an illigimate birth living with grandparents in 1881 age 2 at 116 Spital, Clewer, Berks. But in 1891 living with his mother and shown as John Rosier age 12. In 1901 living as a visitor with William Rosier who I assume is a brother of Henry. It would seem that Henry Rosier is his father.

This family needs the certificates to verify the connections.

MEREDEN, John (I1732)
 
2092  From Rachel Jan 2013

Today I found the following (ancestry.com had as Charles Merrident) and I am wondering if this is him with the name Charles entered by mistake
1881 census Charles Merridew age 48 widow labourer (bricklaying) b.Salisbury, Wiltshire 13-15 Pennyfarthing St, St Edmunds, Salisbury
9 men listed incl. Charles sleeping at …?.. Lodging House
(man listed above him is Charles Macey did the enumerator make a mistake as I  can find no other reference to this Charles
Pennyfarthing St is a continuation of Love Lane where the family was living in 1841The age, married status, occupation , DOB and location all add up!>

. On 1851 census with parents James & Maria and younger brother Edward. They are living at St Martin, Salisbury he is aged 18 born Salisbury.
GRO death index shows he died aged 78 which would fit. Perhaps he left the country for a time and retired back in UK. Not sure if he is the right father for Alfred William as he would have been 50 on his birth. As we haven't found his sons birth you could try Australia and births at sea. Married as Meriden & his father is shown as Alfred James.

In the Times 23 Aug 1842 article titled Alarming fire of a family names Merridew of Pain's Hill, Salisbury.
