Note: For practically the whole of his life he followed farming pursuits, mostly on the Clarence, where he resided for 58 years. He carried on farming at Harwood, Palmer's Channel, Woodford Leigh and Ashby. From Palmer's Channel he went to Woolgoolga, where he followed the same occupation, and later, resided in Grafton. He then went to the Tweed and for four years was engaged in the banana industry, until the disease affected the crops. He then returned to the Clarence and lived in retirement at Maclean until the time of his death.
