In Reply to: Re: MEECH FAMILY TREE by Bud Meech of 276

Rev. W.W. MEECH was a parson and and a writer on Quince, the fruit used for making jelly. He has the plant Meech's Prolific Quince named after him. He had an interesting life and was an American.
The Meech name can be traced back to Beaminister Dorset England, but earliest reference I hav found is about 1423 as a Lord Mayor of York with a coat of arms with greyhonds on it. Thename ios still found in the county of Dorset. Not many people of the name appear to be interested in genealogy!

Hope this helps somewhere along the line!
