Simpson was 13 when his father died and helped his uncles care for the farm, his widowed mother and widowed grandmother, Elsie Simpson McCall. Simpson lived on his grandfather's homestead most of his life. Simpson was a student, and subsequently a friend, of Rev. Egerton Ryerson. Vittoria's Justice of the Peace and postmaster, Simpson farmed, issued licenses and sold fire insurance (1834-1868) when he resigned so his son George could take over. He operated a general store in Vittoria, bought wheat and grain. He served on District Council (1848-1864) he earned a reputation as a good steward of the public purse. He served as Reeve of Charlotteville and four times was chosen Warden of Norfolk County. In 1867 he was elected to the provincial legislature where he served eight years. Shortly before his death Simpson was interviewed by 
E. A. Owen for his 1898 book Pioneer Sketches of the Long Point Settlement. His page one obituary is still one of the longest the Simcoe Reformer ever published.
