He held the office of Recorder of Guildford. He held the office of Member of Parliament (M.P.) (Whig) for Appleby between 1756 and 1761 and for Wigan between 1761 and 1768. He was invested as a Knight in 1762. He held the office of Solicitor-General between 1762 and 1763 and Attorney-General between 1763 and 1765. He held the office of Member of Parliament (M.P.)
