From 'Art in Devonshire' by George Pycroft pub. 1881 - 'Watercolour landscape, born at Chagford in March 1844; paints river and moorland subjects. He received some education at Heatherley's School in London, but his chief source of instruction was the work of artists who in the summer visited his picturesque neighbourhood. He paints with a bold, firm touch in the open air; his work is characterized by perfect fidelity and truthfulness, and he is an admirable delineator of Dartmoor scenery.'
