Educated at St Bartholomew’s Hospital and at Gloucester. He was at one time Surgeon to the East India Mercantile Marine, and in 1855 was in practice at Gloucester, where he was Medical Officer to the Centre District of the Union. Before 1858 he removed to Cardiff, where he was Surgeon to the Bute Docks Provident Dispensary, to the Lying-in Institution, to the Oddfellows, and a Medical Referee to an Assurance Company. He is described at that period as “late Army Staff Assist Surg” and as having been in charge of troops from India, but there is no reference to him in Johnston’s Roll of Army Medical Service.
