Chaworth Brabazon, 6th Earl of Meath

Chaworth Brabazon, 6th Earl of Meath PC (I) (1686 – 14 May 1763), styled Lord Brabazon from 1707 to 1715, was an Anglo-Irish peer.

The eldest surviving son of Chambre Brabazon, 5th Earl of Meath, he sat for Dublin County from 1713 to 1714 before being called up to the Irish House of Lords by writ in acceleration as Baron Ardee. In the following year, he succeeded his father as Earl of Meath. He was governor of County Dublin and County Wicklow, and was appointed to the Privy Council of Ireland in 1716.[1]

On 11 December 1731, he married Juliana (d. 12 December 1758), daughter of Sir Thomas Prendergast, 1st Baronet. They had no children; when he died at Calais in 1763, he was succeeded by his brother Edward.[1]
