in Baltimore, MD. He was educated at Cambridge; inducted in the Stepney
Parish, Somerset Co., MD as a rector from 1740; rector of St. Paul’s Parish
from 1743 until his death in 1779. His interment is in St. Paul’s Cemetery,
Baltimore, MD. His first wife, Matilda Walker, daughter of Thomas Walker,
died in 1741. He later married Ann Birch on 19 July 1763.
