His birth date is given as anything between 1682 and 1704. He was born in County Louth or perhaps County Tipperary. He seems to have been employed as a tutor to Arthur Brownlow’s children in Lurgan and after falling out with him he went to Forkhill and became a schoolteacher. He was a writer of poems and verses on a variety of topics in both English and Irish. He is buried at Urney, County Louth.
