My 3x gt grandmother was Sarah Dell maiden name Meade. When she married John Dell they lived in Uxbridge but I think the Meade's were from Cheshunt. There was a William Meade living in Leighton Buzzard in the mid 1800s, living with him and his family was my 18 year old 3xgt uncle John Dell. Anyone have any information about a Meade family with a Dell connection.
