The following is an excerpt from the obituary for his son, published in the London Free Press, 29 October 1945:
[Meredith] was a family name well known in this city almost since its beginning, and for many years, as the result of the attainments of the group of brothers, one of the most prominent in the Dominion. The Merediths, originally Welsh, entered Ireland about 1600. John Cook Meredith, father of Thomas G. Meredith and his seven brothers and four sisters, was early in his life seized with the wander-spirit of youth. Although the son of a Dublin solicitor and a graduate of Trinity College, Dublin, he elected a backwoods farm near what is now Glanworth as the arena in which he would work out his future. He crossed the Atlantic in 1834.
Subsequently he was deputy collector of customs at Port Stanley, became market clerk here when London was a town of 5,000 and in 1847 became clerk of the Division Court of Middlesex, a position he held until his death, a victim of the Victoria disaster on the Thames River. He was married to Miss Sarah Pegler.

William Rice MEREDITH was born ca. 1813 in Dublin, Ireland.G1 He married Isabella Agnes STANDISH on 7 Jan 1847 in Dublin, Ireland.G2 William Rice MEREDITH died on 20 Oct 1888 in Ireland. He was buried in Mount Jerome Cem, Dublin.G

His obituary appeared in the Belfast News-Letter of 22 October 1888 (pg. 5) as follows:
“Mr William Rice Meredith, a highly esteemed member of the solicitors’ profession, died on Saturday in Dublin. His advanced age and declining health induced him to retire some few years ago from the active practice of his profession, and his business, which was at one time considerable, devolved upon his son. He conducted in his time several cases of great public interest, notably the litigation on behalf of Rev. Mr. O’Keefe against Cardinal Cullen and Bishop Walsh. Mr. Meredith was a man esteemed for his integrity and principle, and he has left his good name as a heritage to his sons, three of whom are well known in legal circles, and one in particular as a leading member of the junior bar.”.
