Other Information  He was commissioned in the Royal Marines in January 1808 and appointed to the 43rd Company, Chatham Division.
He served in HMS Namur and HMS Invincible, and was placed on half-pay in August 1814.
He was located with the main body of Bailie's party, but applied for a separate grant of land in 1821 as he had inherited money in addition to his half-pay and would be able to develop it.
A grant of 500 acres was approved for him but never measured. He was listed in 1823 as belonging to the Grahamstown troop of the Albany Levy, but no later mention of him as a settler has been traced.
His death was reported in the United Service Journal in 1846.
