British contributor to 19th century astrology, an author and pro who continued the traditional name in publishing Raphael's Almanac. He was a schoolmaster on board the "victory" and commenced to study astrology at the age of 14. He lost his mother at age 16, his father at 19 and he married at about age 20. He was pleasant and amiable with excellent manners but his constitution was weak and he was often ill. He died in 1852 and was succeeded by Mr. Sparkes in the editorship of "The Prophetic Messenger."
