He went up to Pembroke College, Oxford in 1732 and while he took no degree, he published Poems on various occasions. In 1741 he published The Judgment of Hercules. He inherited the Leasowes estate, and retired there in 1745 to undertake what proved the chief work of his life, the beautifying of his property.
