He and his wife Elizabeth (qv) had seven children who survived infancy. His three sons were all surgeons: Samuel (qv) who predeceased him; Daniel who practiced in Kings Norton in Worcestershire and whose son John who was also a surgeon and apothecary; and John who practiced in Luton, married Frances Bricheno the daughter of a grocer, and had a large family including three sons Henry (brewer), Edward (doctor) and Frederick (lawyer).
