M. A. of Catherine-hall, Cambridge, and was born in 1703.
He was admitted of King’s-college, Cambridge, by an
unlucky mistake of an uacle, who did not know until too
late, that his not proceeding from Eton school was a bar to
his promotion in that college. He left it, therefore, after

was presented to his livings, is not mentioned. He married
one of Dr. Jortin’s daughters, by whom he had a large family. He had the misfortune to lose his sight some time
before his death, March 2, 1773, but never his placid and
agreeable humour. His publications, besides a single

of Clergymen’s Widows and Orphans at Ipswich, 1751,
are, 1. “
The History and Antiquities of the ancient villa
of Wheatfield, in the county of Suffolk,”
Fugitive Pieces.” 2. “
Physiognomy; being a.
sketch of a larger work upon the same plan, wherein the
different tempers, passions, and manners of men, will be
particularly considered.” 3. “
A Letter of free advice
to a young Clergyman,”
