Meek family of Ahoghill area

Post by Fred Meek »

I am researching the Meek family and related families from the Ahoghill and nearby areas. This line is traced back to John Meek, who lived at Moneydolog in the mid 1700s. An outline of this lineage is shown below. These names, dates, and locations are not from equally reliable sources.

If you have interest in these lines, or want to chat, I would love to hear from you.

I have found a Hugh Meek born around 1792 and married to Rose Finley or Findlay. Rose and Hugh seem to have had the following children : Rachel Meek born 1815, Thomas Meek (1824) Margaret Meek (1828) Matthew Meek (1828) James Meek(1832) and William Meek (1835). In the 1851 census Rose is living in Craigs with Charles Ogleby, William Meek and James Meek. So what happened to Hugh? I am a Meek, descended from William.
