Received his professional training as apprentice to Mr Samuel Partridge, whose partner he afterwards became, and at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, where Edward Stanley (qv) offered him a Demonstratorship of Anatomy. After qualifying he was elected one of the Surgeons of the Eye Infirmary, Birmingham, a post he held for a few years, till the claims of an increasing practice compelled him to relinquish it. For some forty years he was widely known and appreciated in and around Birmingham, till he retired about the year 1866, and went to live at Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire, where he was a much respected Justice of the Peace. Returning to Birmingham a few years before his death, he continued to be known to his patients, friends, and colleagues, as vigorous, kindly, and generous.
He died suddenly, while on a visit to his daughter in London on Sept 29th, 1876. He was for many years a Member of the Council of the British Medical Association.
