G.Rex Meyer Rudolphus Meyer was born in Germany in or about 1770. He was a bootmaker and staunch member of the Lutheran Church. In 1806 he decided to emigrate to the West Indies (St. Vincent) but his ship, The "Margery and Mary", was wrecked on the coast of Ireland near the town of Wexford. Rudolphus decided to remain in Ireland and in 1808 married a widow, Hannah Jackson [nee Atkin], and established a succesful bootmaking business based at "Rose Rock Cottage", Francis Street, Wexford. He died in or about 1850. It has not been possible to locate his place of birth in Germany and help is sought to trace his origins.
