For a number of years he was with Briscoe, Drysdale, and Co., and then he entered into partnership with Mr. J. A. Roberts under the style of Roberts, Chalmers, and Co. iron merchants. Subsequently he was the manager of the Colonial Finance Company, and latterly he had been in business in the city as a chartered accountant and insurance broker. He left two daughters.
