He studied at Homerton Academy and in 1783 settled with and Independent congregation near London at Hammersmith. He later ministered at Salters’ Hall, London, with Worthington (Winter preached in the morning, Worthington in the afternoon), and at the Hanover Street Chapel before leaving for the Isle of Wight in 1803.
