He resided at the Hutt for some time, and afterwards came to this district, haying resided at Richmond for about thirty-two years. He took a keen interest in local affairs, was a member of the Richmond School Committee, also of the Nelson Agricultural and Pastoral Association from its institution. He served well and faithfully on the Committee of the latter Association, rendering valuable services on the Show days, his excellent knowledge of horses and other live stock being acknowledged.
