Birth: 1750
Death: Nov. 18, 1808
Buckinghamshire, England

He ran a smocking Mill which ground wheat.
In 1798 he was listed in the Buckinghamshire Directory as a wheeler in the Posse Comitas. This was a list of able bodied men aged between 15 and 60, who could be called upon in case of Napoleonic invasion. His sons John and William were also listed.
