On leaving Oxford he became chaplain to Blackburne, Archbishop of York and in 1738 he was made Rector of Elton in East Riding. He had several other parishes in Yorkshire when in 1751 he attended the Duke of Dorset, Lord Lieutenant to Ireland, as his chaplain.
      He obtained the See of Killala through the influence of his relatives and was consecrated on 19 January 1752. He was translated to Leighlin and Ferns in 1759, and promoted to Kildare in 1761.
