Born 1878 at Winterton, about 15 miles north of Yarmouth, he was one of nine children and first went to sea at the age of eight. At 12 he signed on as a cabin-boy aboard a sailing lugger, and spent the next 8 years on the North Sea herring luggers. In 1899 he made his first voyage on a steam drifter and continued with them until the Depression days of the thirties forced him to stay ashore. He died on 11th. September, 1965. The copyright of his songs was assigned to Folktrax the following year by Edward George his next of kin and executor.
