Where he worked as a surveyor, builder, and after 1890, as an architect. Born in Selsby, Yorkshire, England on 19 September 1832, he emigrated Upper Canada in 1847 with his uncle William MacDonald and his family. He settled at Duntroon, in Nottawasaga Township, then moved to the village of Hurontario in 1851. He assisted with the development of Northern Railway terminus at Collingwood, acting as a contractor for houses and sheds erected for the men engaged on final extension of the railway line and later erecting his first building on Hurontario Street in 1853-54 on the site of the present Globe Hotel. In 1858 he dabbled in journalism, contributing articles to the Collingwood Enterprise, of which he was to later serve as Editor in 1876-77. In 1859 he moved to St. Catharines, Ont. Where he held the position of Superintendent of Rolling Stock on the Welland Railway until 1876. He returned to Collingwood, but in 1877 he left Canada and moved to New York City to accept a position as Associate Editor of The American Builder magazine." (Biographical Dictionary of Architects).
