Redpath married Grace Wood on October 16, 1847: she was the daughter of William Wood, a merchant and philanthropist, of Bowdon, Cheshire, and was educated privately. The couple lived in Montreal until they retired to Chislehurst, Kent in the 1870s. Redpath died on February 1, 1894, aged 73, and was buried in the St. Nicholas Churchyard in Chislehurst.[2]

His widow contributed $11,500 in 1894 for Redpath Museum expenses and $40,500 for the maintenance an expansion of the Redpath Library at McGill University, which was completed in 1894. A portrait and bust of Redpath, and a portrait of his wife, were placed by the governors of McGill University in its main gallery.[3]
