The chapterstyle thatcher forces capitalization of the chapter title and this seems to cause \ref{xyz}. to be read as \ref{XYZ}.  Indeed, when I labeled the equation in question in all caps, the reference appeared correctly.  I wonder then if there is a way to protect xyz in \ref{xyz} frm being capitalized. I tried the naive {\ref{xyz}} but it did not work.

Can you post a minimal example?  The following seems to work as you would expect:

\documentclass{memoir}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\chapterstyle{thatcher}
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\chapter{A chapter}
$$y = x^{2} \label{abc}$$
\chapter{Another chapter Eq.~\ref{abc}}
\end{document}
