He was apprenticed to John Harvey, one of the earliest makers of wine labels. He was a freeman by patrimony of the Fishmongers' Company, although his output seems to have been almost exclusively wine-related silver; he made many wine labels and one funnel is also known by him. Both his sons, Thomas, jnr. and James were in the family business, and James' wife Mary continued the line with her childern and with her second husband, John Reily well into the 19th century.
