He was born at Buckinghamshire, England, and came to Victoria at the age of 17 years, and going to Ballarat was the oldest survivor of the Eureka riot. For the past sixty years he lived continuously at Ararat, and for a long term of years was valuer and inspector for the Shire of Ararat, and was well known and respected all over the district.
