I was born in Scotland on 17th January, 1942. I grew up in north London where I went to Mill Hill School and then to Keble College, Oxford where I read Law. Afterwards I taught for a few years at a prep. school before qualifying as a solicitor. I practised as a solicitor for about 35 years in the town of Louth in Lincolnshire, becoming a partner and later running the firm. I retired six years ago but still live in Louth with my wife. We have two adult children. Apart from Roman history which I studied at school and have been interested in ever since, my other main interests are gardening, reading and sport, particularly rugby and cricket. I still play tennis regularly. I also do some charitable work as a trustee for Home-Start.
