 Notes  Sailed for NZ from Deal Kent, for Wellington, 9 Aug. 1849 at 9.00 p.m. on the 'Pekin'. Landed safely in Jan 1850 (Passenger Resgister) all well and in good spirit. May have trained as a doctor in the U.K., but did not complete his training.

Was the Headmaster of Collingwood School in 1859.
There is a photo of the school and the headmaster's house, and mention of his name on page 20 of a book ;"Collingwood To The Heaphy Track" by Carol Dawber , Published by River Press, Picton, New Zealand, 2000.

He was married to Harriet Rebecca Lyne at this time. The date fits with the births of three of their children in Collingwood (Emma 1860, Frederick 1862, Joseph 1864)

Died of paralysis and pneumonia at the Benevolent, Caversham, Dunedin, NZ
