Born at Ballydugan, Co. Galway, it is thought on 10 May 1785.  Supposedly aged 16 on entry to Trinity College, Dublin, in Oct. 1800, and aged 60 at death according to the anouncement in Freeman's Journal, but those may be exaggerated.

Married at St George, Dublin. He was educated at Trinity College, Dublin (BA 1805).  He was vicar of Kilcolgan, provost of Kilmacduagh, prebendary of Kilconnell, and rector of Oranmore.
