A miner of Kuantan, who collected orchids which he contributed to Singapore in 1889 (cf. Burkill in Gard. Bull. Str. Settlem. 4, 1927, nos 4-5).

He collected living orchids in Borneo as early as 1888 (vide letter at Kew). He had the intention to visit Palawan.

Cited many times in Merrill, Enum. Born. Pl., 1921, as the collector of orchids from Borneo. He evidently sent living orchids from Borneo to Hort. Sing. (cf. Ridley in Journ. Linn. Soc. Bot. 31, 1896, p. 261-306) before 1894.
