Their son, Thomas Meakin, was born in 1795 at Chellaston, Derbyshire, and married Sarah Heath who was born in 1798. They married at Stanton by Bridge, Derbyshire in 1820 and had fourteen children, all of whom were born at Chellaston, Derbyshire:

The George Meakin who was born in 1828 Married Hanna Bates, and they had at least one child, Agnes Meakin who was born in 1855 at Shardlow, Derbyshire and Christened the same year at Chellaston Parish Church. She married Octavious Underwood at Nottingham in 1895, and they had six children. All six children, as well as being part of the Underwood Family, were also descendants of the Meakin Family.
