1791. In November, 1798, appointed judge of Court of King's Bench for
Upper Canada. Elected to Legislative Assembly for constituency of
Durham, Simcoe, and E. York, 1800, but unseated by the Assembly, June,
1801. Under the direction of Lieutenant-Governor Hunter, engaged in the
preparation of a bill to establish a Court of Equity in the province,
and was to have been the first chancellor of the Court. The Court of
Equity, however, was not at this time established, and on the removal of
Chief-Justice Elmsley to Lower Canada, October, 1802, was appointed
chief-justice of Upper Canada, and a member of the Executive and
Legislative Councils. On the death of Elmsley, promoted to chief-justice
of Lower Canada, July 1, 1805. In August, 1806, took his seat as a
member of the Executive Council, and in January, 1807, appointed a
member and chairman of the Legislative Council. Died at Quebec, Feb. 22,
1808. =Bib.=: Read, Lives of the Judges; Cartwright, Life and Letters
