Surveyor and prospector in western Tasmania from 1868; visited Temora, New South Wales (1880), Victoria (1882-1883) and Sydney and Brisbane (1885). Sent specimens to Rodway. His bryophyte collections in HO, from the west coast of Tasmania, date from 1897 to 1907. The R.G.Brett Eucalyptus collection in HO (duplicates in MEL) apparently passed through his hands.
