He was a Fellow of the Royal Society, a Fellow of the Society of Antiquities and a corresponding member of the royal academies of Lisbon, Munich, Berlin and Brussels. He was appointed by the Public Records Commission to locate all significant state records in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, describe their physical condition and summarize their contents.
