“The Honourable Kenneth Elliott Meredith
February 4, 1922 - December 3, 2012
Kenneth's tenacity, intelligence, and natural leadership led him to accomplish many remarkable things in his 90 years. The year Kenneth graduated from Prince of Wales High School (1940) he joined the Royal Canadian Navy. He served in the Second World War, first as a midshipman on loan to the Royal Navy for training on H.M.S. Rajputana. He survived the sinking of that vessel after it was torpedoed off the coast of Iceland. At the age of 21, Kenneth was made Captain of the Corvette H.M.C.S. Trillium, making him the youngest Commander in the British Commonwealth at the time. Following the war, Kenneth returned to Vancouver where, in 1949, he married Valerie Manning with whom he had three children. He completed his BA and LLB at the University of British Columbia in 1950. After graduating from UBC, he joined the firm of his father, Elmore Meredith, Q.C., and later led Meredith & Co. until he was appointed to the Supreme Court of BC in 1973. Kenneth practiced law as a solicitor for over two decades, eight years as a bencher of the Law Society of BC, and served over 20 years as a Justice of the Supreme Court of BC. After retirement, he continued to contribute as a member of the Pension Appeals Board of Canada. A leader in the legal community, Kenneth served 10 years as the editor of The Advocate magazine and was a key force and visionary in creating a legal plan for British Columbians and in establishing the Law Foundation of British Columbia, where he served as founding governor from 1969-1972. In 2002, Kenneth received the Law Society Award recognizing his lifetime of committed service, integrity, and contribution to the legal profession and community. Away from the office, Kenneth served as the President of the Vancouver Lawn Tennis and Badminton Club, Chairman of the Board of Governors of Crofton House School, President of Theatre Under the Stars, and President of the Family Service Agency of Greater Vancouver, and the United Appeal. He was a keen golfer and skier and excelled in badminton, winning the Canadian national doubles badminton championship in 1949. Kenneth loved the sea and enjoyed boating adventures, as well as spending time at the cottage on Savary Island. Despite his many accomplishments, Kenneth was always thoughtful, modest, and devoted to his family.”.

W[illiam?] M. MEREDITH

U, #2263, b. before 1805, d. March 1822

Parents

Biography

W[illiam?] M. MEREDITH was born bef. 1805 in Ireland. He/she died in Mar 1822 in Queen's Co., Ireland.G He/she was buried on 13 Mar 1822 in Maryborough, Queen's Co., Ireland.G
Maryborough burial record gives only initials "W.M."; probably was named William, as no other given name starting with "W" was known in the family. But, perhaps a Wilhelmina? No age given, but normally when a child was buried that was indicated, so perhaps this individual was a male, named William, and would have been at least 20 years of age at the time.
