Miniature painter.

Acres studied at the Royal Academy. He came to Sydney, Cape Breton County, early in 1815 to see about a land inheritance. Mr. Harry Piers in a communication to the writer states: 'From about September, 1815, till 1816 or later he was in Halifax but returned to Sydney about 1817. He went again to Halifax sometime before 1823, and apparently was still painting miniatures in Halifax in 1826. He committed suicide at Halifax soon afterwards."
