Biography

Sir William Ralph Meredith
(1840-1923)
Photo: Wikipedia
Sir William Ralph MEREDITH was born on 13 Mar 1840 in Westminster tp, Middlesex county, Upper Canada.G He married Mary HOLMES on 26 Jun 1861. Sir William Ralph MEREDITH died on 22 Aug 1923, at age 83, in Montreal, Quebec. He was buried in St. James' Cemetery, Toronto, Ontario.G1
Sir William R. Meredith was the acknowledged leader of the London Bar in Ontario in the last two decades of the 19th century. He was appointed the Chief Justice of Ontario in recognition of his legal attainments --a position held at the time of his death in 1923. He represented the City of London in the Ontario Legislature for many years and was the leader of the Conservative party in that House. In 1877 he was fined $100, after being found guilty of common assault following an altercation at Toronto Union Station, between himself and the estranged husband of his cousin, Amy Meredith Williams of Port Hope (Craick, 1966).

In 1881 William and his family lived in London, Ontario. He served from 1886 until 1900 as the second President and Vice-Chancellor of what is now the University of Western Ontario, succeeding Bishop Isaac Hellmuth. He then became Chancellor of the University of Toronto. In the 1901 census the family is living in Toronto (Ward 2, p. 16), and William's occupation is listed as Judge. In 1919 he was said to reside at 4 Lamport Avenue, Toronto (Greene, 1919, p.1169).

Armstrong (1986) notes: [William] graduated from the University of Toronto and studied law with and became a partner of Thomas Scatcherd in London. When Scatcherd died in 1876 William succeeded him as city solicitor, and was one of the defence lawyers in the Donnelly trial. In 1872 William was elected to the provincial legistlature as a Conservative and from 1878 to 1894 was the leader of the party and of the opposition in the Legislative Assembly. He was chief justice of the Court of Common Pleas of Ontario until his death in 1923. Knighted in 1896, Sir William sat on two commissions to revise the Ontario statutes and drafted the original 1915 Workmen's Compensation Act.

He left an estate of $133,877 to his children.

Both are recorded as aliens; Charles arrived in the US in 1920, Elspeth (listed as Elizabeth) arrived in 1919.

Biography

Henry Vincent Meredith
(1850-1929)
Sir Henry Vincent MEREDITH was born on 28 Feb 1850 in London, Canada West.G1 He married Isabella Brenda ALLAN. Sir Henry Vincent MEREDITH died on 24 Feb 1929, at age 78, in Montreal, Quebec.2
Henry Vincent Meredith entered the Bank of Montreal at London as a junior clerk, but he gained rapid promotion and finished his career as the president of the bank. In recognition of the eminence in the financial world, he was created a baronet, an unusual distinction in Canada (from obituary for his brother, London Free Press, 1945)
In 1881 he was living with his parents in London and his occupation was bank inspector. In 1901 Vincent and his wife were living in Montreal, along with 5 servants: a parlor maid, cook, kitchen maid, house [sic] and ladies maid.

Armstrong (1986) notes: “The dominant figure among those brothers who went into business was Henry Vincent (1850-1929), who married a daughter of Andrew Allan of the Allan Line of steamships. Joining the Bank of Montreal in 1867, he rose to general manager of the bank by 1911, was president from 1913 to 1927, and then chairman. He was also president of the Royal Trust Company and the Royal Victoria Hospital. He received a baronetcy in 1916, becoming Sir Vincent. He left an estate of well over a half-million dollars (pp. 176-177). There were no children.”.
