Jack Merriott was born on 15th November 1901 in New Cross London  to John Boultwood Merriott (Railway ticket collector) and his wife  Eleanor  and studied art at Croydon School of Art and St Martin's School of Art.  On 18th June  1932 he married Hilda May Bridger the daughter of Harry Bridger. Jack painted landscapes and portraits in oil and watercolour.  He started work as a shipping clerk in a company exporting heavy machinery to South Africa but soon painted full time for a living. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Royal Society of British Artists and Royal West of England Academy. He was elected RI in 1944, PS in 1951, SMA in 1954, ROI in 1959, President of the Wapping Group of Artists from 1947 to 1960, member of the Langham Sketch Club and the St Ives Society of Artists.  He lived in Shirley in Surrey and Storrington in Sussex before moving to Island House, Polperro in the early 1950's. Jack moved back to Storrington, as travel to his many commitments throughout Britain was difficult. It was in 1968 when he was driving home to Storrington he skidded on black ice and was seriously injured. He never recovered from his injuries, dying later in that year. One of his hobbies was sailing and he also designed and painted posters for British Rail and other tourist agencies
