Settled in Quebec, 1761, and became prominent in
maintaining the rights of the civil authority as opposed to the
military. January, 1766, appointed deputy secretary, clerk of the
Council, and registrar of enrolments, but because of his opposition to
the government, Murray refused to admit him to office. In April, 1768,
Carleton confirmed him in these appointments, which he retained until
superseded by George Pownall in 1775. From 1771 to 1776 deputy
commissary-general. One of the original members of the Legislative
Council, under the Quebec Act. In 1780, when the Legislative Council
presented an address to Haldimand opposing the passing of an ordinance
amending the judicial system of the province in accordance with royal
instructions to the governor, voted against the address and caused a
strongly worded protest to be entered in the minutes of the Council.
This action resented by members of the Council, and ultimately led to
his dismissal by Haldimand, February, 1783. =Index=: (Sir Frederick Haldimand era) Member of
