He published several theological works:

Wicked Christians Practical Atheists, or Free Thoughts of a Plain Man on the Doctrines and Duties of Religion in general, and of christianity in particular, compared and contrasted with the Faith and Practice of Protestants of every Denomination so far as either have come under the observation or to the knowledge of the Author (1754);

A Modest Inquiry how far the Thirty-nine Articles of the Church of England and the Creed ascribed to St Athanasius are consistent with and supported by one another, and how they are also consistent with the Declarations of Jesus Christ and the Doctrines of his Apostles (1755);

The Fall of Man; an Enquiry into the Nature of that Event and how far the posterity of Adam are involved in the guilt of his Transgression, addressed to all, but particularly preachers who embrace the doctrine of original sin (1756).

Now those are long book titles!

He married twice, first to Sarah Pinder in 1707, second to Margaret Todd, daughter of Christopher Todd of Wheatfield near Smardale Bridge, in 1714.
