In 1879 he was the medical officer of the Oystermouth Local Board and lived in Mumbles, South Wales. He was in Swanage, Dorset in 1883 and at Grasmere, Westmoreland in 1887-1895. In the 1901 census he was described as ‘physician, surgeon, artist’, living with his son at 1 Colebrook Road, Southwick. In 1911 he was at 4 Colebrook Road, Southwick.
