Born at the Court, Pembrey, Carmarthenshire. He was the most famous of a family of bone-setters who had established a wide reputation for themselves in that particular profession and had won the confidence of a large number of their contemporaries. His claim to fame, however, was more on account of a natural bent than of any professional qualifications he possessed. He died 25 May 1788 at the age of 49.
