Eldest daughter of Sir William Meredith, Knight (circa 1560-bef 1643), and Lady Jane Palmer, his wife (who, after her first husband's decease, became Countess of Carbery, Ireland).

Anne Meredith married firstly Sir Robert Brett. Widowed, Lady Anne married secondly to Sir Francis Cottington, 1st Baron Cottington of Hanworth (near Heathrow in Middlesex)

She died on 22 February 1634 (in modern dating) and Francis set up a black marble monument with a bronze bust of her in St Paul's chapel where she is buried. The bust is by the sculptor Hubert Le Sueur and is surrounded by a wreath, both of which have been re-gilded. On an elaborate tablet below is the inscription:

"Dedicated to the memory of Anne the pious and beloved wife of Francis Lord Cottington Baron of Hanworth in the county of Middlesex. Daughter of Sir Will: Meredith of the county of Denbigh Knt. and of Jane his wife, daughter of Sir Tho: Palmer of Wingham in Kent, Knt. and Baronet.

Anno.1633, AEtatis [aged] 33, having had one sonne and fower daughters of which Frances, Elizabeth and Anne dyed before her, Charles and Anne now living anno 1635."
