Richard Meggot, of Queen's College in Cambridge, was rector of St. Olave's in Southwark, and vicar of Twickenham in Middlesex. In 1677, he succeeded Bruno Ryves, dean of Windsor, in his canonry belonging to that church; and was, in about two years after, made dean of Winchester. He was a preacher of note in this reign, in which he published several occasional sermons. Ten of his discourses were printed together in 1699, octavo. He died the 7th of Dec. 1692, and was buried in the chapel at Windsor.
