  He passed the entry exam for Indian Civil Service in 1866, and was posted to the Bengal Presidency on 3 December 1868.   He was then posted to District of Nuddea, Assistant Magistrate and Collector; Headquarters Kishnagar; and in charge of Meherpur sub-division from 1869 to 1873.   He was then transferred to Tajpur, Mozufferpur.
  He experienced firsthand the Bengal Famine, and directed relief operations from his headquarters at Poosa from 1874 to 1875, followed by a well deserved, but brief sick-leave back to England.
  Upon his return to India, he married Amy Margaret Dampier, in St Peters Church, Fort William, Calcutta.   He was then appointed Joint Magistrate, first at Bhagulpore in 1876, then in Howrah from 1877 to July 1879.   He was then posted to Suri in Birbhum from July 1879 to 1881, followed by Darjeeling as Deputy Commissioner from 1881 to 1884.   He did manage a "privilege" leave back to England in 1882.   In 1885, he transferred to Baghalpur as Commissioner until 1894, which included a six Month Detachment to Assam Valley as Judicial Commissioner at Gauhati and Shillong in 1890.   He Returned to England, in 1894, and settled in Frant, East Sussex, resigning from Indian Civil Service, on Doctors advice, in September 1895.
