Pontey was from a prominent family of Yorkshire nurserymen, living near Lepton in Kirkheaton. During the early 1780s he spent some time as head gardener to the Grimston family at Kilnwick, near Beverley. With the patronage of the sixth Duke of Bedford, he worked hard to encourage to improve the practices of replanting of trees and forest management on the English estates.
