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.
