A native of the north of Ireland, he served his apprenticeship
with William Bradford in Philadelphia. After printing in Lancaster, he returned
to the city in 1757, and married a relation of Mrs. Benjamin Franklin. He ran
a printing house and book store in Market Street until 1765/6 when he sold off
his stock and transferred management of the printing house to his nephew John.
Traveling to England, he obtained ordination in the church of England and, returning
to the colonies, became a rector at a church in Virginia.
