He was actively involved in several the major Victorian building projects, including the of St Barnabas Church and St Stephens Church. He was on the committee responsible for the construction of Victoria Tower in 1848, and was States Supervisor when the foundation stone of the new harbor was laid. He was elected Jurat in 1844. In 1869, he became Lieutenant Bailiff, and in 1884 was appointed Bailiff of Guernsey. He was knighted in 1886, and retired due to ill-health in 1895. In 1873 he persuaded the States to buy the near-derelict Chapel of St Appoline in St Saviours - the first ancient monument to be acquired by the States of Guernsey. In 1886, he persuaded the States to vote £200, which together with private contributions, funded the Model Yacht Pond on the Castle Emplacement. He was fascinated with old traditions, beliefs, customs and superstitions of the island, and he wrote down to form the basis for the book, Guernsey Folk Lore, which was edited and published by Edith Carey after his death in 1903. He served as Gunner in the Royal Guernsey Militia Artillery.
