Further to my search for Wilton, geneaccount's link provided a little more information on him. He deserted again from the Kamehameha while the ship was in Valparaiso Chile. I haven't found any matching records even on a worldwide search :(
I now think he was named after the son of his father's employer. Here are my reasons: Wilton's father seemed proud to be working for Kelsick Wood (shipbuilder Maryport) as his employer is specified in the 1851 census. In May 1832 Kelsick Wood's son, Wilton William Wood was accidentally killed, aged 28, in a coach accident. My Wilton has the initials WW after his first name on the 1851 census so that may stand for William Wood ie his full name would have been Wilton William Wood Glover. Does that make any sense?
