Biography* Their eldest son William was delicate, and they were ordered to take him into the country, so my grandfather bought Greenbank, then only a farm-house, surrounded by trees and fields about three miles from the town, and here their other children were born. Before his death my grandfather had intended to greatly enlarge and alter the house, but did not live even to see the plans completed. After his death, his widow carried out the alterations as she believed her husband would have wished, and was somewhat horrified to find how much had been spent in the gratification of her taste.4 
Occupation* M; a merchant, ship owner, philanthropist & educationalist.

He took over the family firm when his father, William died in 1789, when he was 32 and had already been running the business for many years.

Considering his education to have been insufficient, he continued his studies in French, Latin, History, studying far into the night, after a hard day's work at his office ; and kept himself awake ' by wrapping a wet towel round his head and pursuing his studies in a kneeling posture.' This over-work told on a constitution not naturally strong, and he died in 1809, at the early age of fifty-one, after a long period of failing health.10,4
