Thomas Meredith (MP for Kent)

Thomas Meredith (after 1666 11 July 1701) was an English Whig politician who sat in the House of Commons of England in 1701.[1]

Thomas Meredith was the son of Sir Richard Meredith, 2nd Baronet, of Leeds Abbey, Kent, and his wife Susanna, daughter of Philip Skippon.[2] He was educated at Trinity Hall, Cambridge [3] and entered Inner Temple in 1683. In 1689 he became a J.P. for Kent.[2]

Meredith was elected Member of Parliament (MP) for Kent in an uncontested election in January 1701.[2] He was a Whig and presented the Kentish Petition to the house in March. Although apparently in good health, he sickened when he went to the country during the recess in August[2] and died in London.[4]
