He resided for a time as a fellow commoner at St John's College, Cambridge, but did not graduate. On 25 April 1796 he entered Lincoln's Inn; he was called to the bar on 16 November 1801, and afterwards practised as an equity draftsman. In 1815 he published A Treatise on the Principles and Practice of the High Court of Chancery, which reached a third edition in 1837. It was the first general treatise on the principles and practice of modern equity and also the first to sum up the work of the lord chancellors of the eighteenth century. - Dictionary of National Biography, J.M.
