Born in Birmingham, he was educated at King Edward School there. Early in his life worked as a manufacturing chemist, and due to his innovative work was able to live off the proceeds of his patents for the rest of his life.
He became a Congregationalist minister and moved to Bow in London: for fifty years he was minister of North Bow Congregational Church which he built with his own funds. He retired in 1907.
