I know of a David Merritt and his wife Anne Ashby, from Ticehurst and Battle, Sussex, England, respectively. They settled in Sackets Harbor in 1804, together with David's sister Jemima. In 1805 she married a member of the English Luff family (my ancestors).
Anne Ashby's parents, 3 sisters and a brother also settled in Sackets Harbor in 1805.
I don't have any information on direct Merritt descendants after that, but perhaps this will help your work.
