Studied at St George's Hospital, where he was House Surgeon; later being House Surgeon at the Lock Hospital. He practised at 2 Albany Courtyard, Piccadilly, W, and for some years from 1835 he lectured on anatomy at Lane's Medical School in Grosvenor Place, having Samuel Lane as his colleague. Amiable and retiring, he never gained a large practice, which apparently concerned venereal disease. He died after a long illness, terminating in dropsy, on Jan 3rd, 1870.
