According to L&M he was of Wricklemarsh, south of Blackheath, Kent. One of the most vigorous supporters of parliament and the Commonwealth in the country. After a brief spell in prison in 1660 he retired into private life, devoting himself to mechanical inventions, a new chariot, a waywiser etc, some of which Pepys describes. He was elected FRS in 1665, but withdrew from the Society in 1668.
