He was known to supply plant and seed specimens to other botanists and Botanical Gardens, including Ferdinand von Mueller of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne.
In 1866 he published Notes on Some of the Roots, Tubers, Bulbs and Fruits Used as Vegetable Food by the Aboriginals of Northern Queensland, Australia.
