Entering the navy at an early age, he attained a high reputation as a naval officer, and in 1626 was appointed by Charles I as Joint Governor of the island of Jersey.
On the commencement of the Civil War he retired from the navy, and withdrew with his family to Jersey, but subsequently returned to aid the projects of the royalists.
He afterwards, on the ruin of the royal cause, afforded an asylum to the Prince of Wales and other refugees of distinction within his government of Jersey where he served as Bailiff 1643-1651, and defended the island against the Parliamentarians, Elizabeth Castle being the last fortress that lowered the royal banner.
