A book of his notes on wool, cotton and principles of weaving and knitting suggests that he might have been apprenticed there to a textile or hosiery business. However in the 1920 he migrated to Tasmania as an orchardist. He also worked as a stockman to a George Town butcher, as a ploughman, at Kellsall and Kemp’ s Factory, Invermay, and finally was a lighthouse keeper. In 1951 he was head keeper of Swan Island light house. His son Maxwell Ernest (1924-1948), attended Launceston Grammar School, joined the RAAFin world War II and was killed in a car accident in 1948.
