He was a British colonial administrator in India & married Frances Thomason, a sister of James Thomason; she died of smallpox at Allahabad in 1842. In May 1857, at the start of the Indian Mutiny, he was in Lahore in the Punjab, where he was Judicial Commissioner (and in-charge of Chief Commissioner at Lahore) of the province. He immediately had the native garrison disarmed, which prevented them from taking any action in the rebellion. He was awarded with a knighthood for this action.


* Burial in Family Vault in county Londonderry on 3.1.1888
