fl. 1784-1819.



Of the Madras Medical Service, 1784-1814, was associated with the Moravian missionaries, and laid out a garden in Madras City. He was a friend of Roxburgh and largely contributed to the Calcutta Garden, mostly plants from India, but also credited with plants from the Malay Islands (1799), Moluccas (1807), and Africa (see Roxburgh, Hort. Beng. 1814). Those from outside India were presumably cultivated in his own garden, and not brought to India by himself.
