The Meyrick Baronetcy, of Bush House in the parish of St Mary in the County of Pembroke and of Apley Castle in the parish of Wellington in the County of Salop, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom.[1] It was created on 5 May 1880 for Thomas Meyrick, Conservative Member of Parliament for Pembroke from 1868 to 1874. Born John Charlton, he had assumed by Royal licence the surname of Meyrick (which was that of his maternal grandfather) in lieu of his patronymic in 1858.[2] As of 2007 the presumed fifth Baronet has not successfully proved his succession and is therefore not on the Official Roll of the Baronetage.

The family surname is pronounced "Merrick".
