Born at Liverpool in 1794/5. He was captain of the flat Ann (60 tons), which has been immortalized by J. Glyn Davies's ballad ' Fflat Huw Puw '; she was a Liverpool vessel, and he was master in 1840 or earlier, and part-owner. He traded chiefly between Runcorn, Liverpool, and Caernarvon. He moved to live at Caernarvon, and thence to the Barras, Llanidan. The flat was lost on the S. Tudwal Islands, 18 October 1858, on a voyage to Barmouth. He died at Llanidan, and was buried there 10 August 1865.
