He was one of the founders of Collingwood. He arrived in May 1956 and established the newspaper 'Enterprise' in January of 1857. He published a map of Simcoe county in 1871 detailing all of the landowners; it was an expensive undertaking that did not realize its cost.

As a member of the Orange Order he was a District Master for Nottawasaga of the Grand Orange Lodge of Canada during 1857.
