From George Pycroft's Art in Devonshire 1880 -
'water-colour landscape, born at Chagford in March 1844; paints river and moorland subjects. He received some education at the Exeter School of Art, and at Heatherleigh's School in London, but his chief source of instruction was the work and conversation of the artists who in 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 a admirable delineator of Dartmoor scenery.'
