The artist lived at Ross, Herefordshire, Swansea and London (Wood). He exhibited Newlyn at the RBA in 1873, and in the same year, Watergate Bay, Cornwall at the RA. His exhibit At Newlyn, Mounts Bay, Cornwall was shown in 1874 at the RA.

A correspondent (2017) has sent a report from the Royal Cornwall Gazette of 1.4.1871 describing Mr John Squire as 'a native of Liskeard, and for nine years clerk of the East Cornwall Bank, Bodmin.' His watercolour paintings of Cornish coastal scenery were exhibited at an exhibition in Manchester.
