Nottingham, 8 Dec. 1723; d Windsor, 25 June 1798) before him, he began his career as a military draughtsman. Both brothers saw service in Scotland, Thomas during the 1745–6 Jacobite rebellion, and Paul after it, when he worked on a survey of the Highlands as part of the government campaign to subdue the area.
