At Ox­ford, he made life-long friend­ships with some, and ac­quaint­ance with most of the fore­most men of his time, in­clud­ing Ar­nold, Ke­ble, Whate­ly, Mil­man, Bick­ards, New­man, Stan­ley, and oth­ers.

He en­tered Lin­coln’s Inn and was called to the Chan­ce­ry Bar. He took a pro­mi­nent part in Lon­don and at Ox­ford in the re­li­gious move­ments of the day.

On re­tir­ing from the Bar, he lived first at Tick­wood Hall, Much Wen­ock, Shrop­shire, then at the Knowle, Ha­zel­wood, Der­by­shire.
