He was born in St John's, Nova Scotia and first visited Banks Peninsula in command of a trading brig in the 1840s. He was in charge of the schooner Edwin Stanley during the New Zealand Wars, and was court-martialled for taking his vessel to the rescue of a settler attacked by Māori while carrying stores for troops at Wanganui. He settled in Akaroa on Banks Peninsula.
