Leeds printer, bookseller and stationer and a WM local preacher. In the Leeds Organ Case he was involved with those who opposed the installation of a organ in Brunswick Chapel. His own views were expressed in his Statement of Facts (1827). This provoked responses from the itinerants Thomas Galland and Isaac Keeling, which he answered in his Vindication of the Statement of Facts... (1827). In 1828 and 1830 he published further pamphlets by others who were critical of Conference's approval of the organ in spite of the District Meeting's opposition.
