Together with his wife Sarah and his family he lived at 3 Percy Villas, Barrington Road, Brixton from 1855 and by 1867 was living at 12 Adelphi-place, Coldharbour Lane, Camberwell. Around 1870, the family settled at Ferndale House, Thurlow Park Road, Dulwich where he spent most of his life.
He began exhibiting at the RA from 1854-1889 and also exhibited at the Dowdeswell Gallery, Royal Society of Birmingham Artists and the Royal Institute.
