MeiringJohannes HendricusDescended from a French refugee family who fled to Holland after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1684, his direct descendant, Arnoldus Mauritius Meiring, having gone to the Cape as minister of the PR Church at Tulbagh, Cape Colony, in 1734. The subject of our sketch is the son of J W H Meiring, Mayor of Worcester, Cape Colony, where Mr J H Meiring was born Oct 22, 1849. He was educated in that town; was Headmaster of the Government School at Murraysdorp, Cape Colony, in 1872, and in 1881 went to the OFS as Secretary, to the Mining Board at Jagersfontein, when he subsequently entered the Free State Civil Service as Public Prosecutor to the Special Court for the trial of IPB cases, as well as to the Magistrates' Court. In 1886 he became Landdrost Clerk and Public Prosecutor at Harrismith, and in 1889 when the OFS entered into a Customs Union with the CO, he was appointed Collector of Customs of the State. He attended the Customs Conferences of 1896 and '98. He retained this appointment until the British occupation on March 1 3, 1900. Seven days later, however, he was reinstated by Lord Roberts, and on the military regime being superseded by Civil Government, his position as Collector of Customs for the ORC was confirmed by Lord Milner. In 1902 Mr Meiring was nominated a member of the Legislative Council for the ORC, and he took part in the Customs Conference in 1903 as Customs Adviser. From 1883 to 1894 he was JP for the respective districts in which he held office, and from the latter year has been a JP for the whole Colony.
