Born 1750 at Bradden, I.O.M. he started to translate the Bible into the Manx language at the age of 16, 1776 he wrote a dictionary of the Manx language. After becoming tutor to Lord Huntley and accompanying him as fellow commoner to Cambridge and on the Grand Tour of the Continent he married and later, 1795, became Vicar of Ardleigh. Fearing his village might be caught up in fighting during the Napoleonic Wars he decided to make a list of all his parishioners. He called at every house and cottage and transcribed the information on to 12 pages of the parish register. This information forms the basis of the book by F.H. Erith Ardleigh in 1796", 1978.
