Origins of surname

This is possibly a variant of Meadows. There has been a place in Oxfordshire called Meader since the 12th century. The ultimate derivation is presumably somebody living by a mead, a flooded meadow

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was in the 1850s, when there were three, possibly unconnected families, living in the island.
