Additional Information:

Meredith saw active service against the French in Flanders, where he was seen to be a determined leader. In 1702 he raised a new regiment in his name and joined the British troops, in 1703 on the Continent under the Earl of Marlborough. His success at Schellenberg in 1704, where he stormed the French Bavarian position,, enabled Marlborough to have a clear road to Blenheim. Meredith lost 14 officers and 80 men at Schellenberg. Little is known about Dixon, expect that he took over from Cooper as the King’s limner in 1673.
