He then served with the Coast Guard as a Boatman on Hayling Island and at Blatchington (now as a Leading Boatman).

He had signed on for a second 10-year period in 1878 (now being height 5' 8" in height, hair dark brown, eyes hazel, complexion dark, with a head wound and a tear in the left leg). This was followed by a short engagement on HMS Northampton, then HMS Invincible from Nov 1886. His engagement continued until he was pensioned off from HMS President (the London shore base of the RN) in Oct 1888 (now as Chief Petty Officer).3

He married Mary Ann (---?---) in England.6

He was listed in the 1921 census as Head of Family at 16 Napier Terrace in Plymouth, Devon, with his wife Mary; he was a Navy pensioner.6
