I wondered about that anchor, and if there would be a sailing link?.  Where to look is the next step.
Seems as if I have to track down his parents Lucy Fleet and William Dibden.  No luck at this stage with birth or marriage for Lucy.  But according to the link SharnJ gave me, it sounds as if they may not of married.
There were eight children between them.  Good to notice the names were indeed carried down to William Fleets children as well.
 He was a naughty young man.  No criminal activities once he married and settled.  If anything the family were strict Catholics for many years.

Hi Suzy

Here is a link to researching early records - http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/catalogue/RdLeaflet.asp?sLeafletID=127 . It seems they start in 1835. But it looks as if you will have to contact Kew.

Thanks KM.  Can you imagine my problem with the name "Fleet" and shipping records? 
Will work on what I have at this time, would presume he was a merchant seaman before being a ploughman.
He certainly is an interesting character.
Still no response about his wife Sibby from the Ireland broad :(

All the best.  And Thanks everyone for your great links and help.

Does anyone know what happened to her. It seems her marriage ended as she was cut to herself in 1853

According to here -
http://portcygnet.free.fr/names.htm
"FLEET According to the 1851 Census, William Fleet lived at Lymington with his wife and son. William Fleet applied to marry the ex-convict Sabina "Sibby" Collins in 1850. They married in Hobart in 1850. Sabina Collins was tried in Co. Mayo 18 January 1848 and sentenced to 7 years for larceny. Children: William (1850), George (1853, Hobart), Richard (1855, Hobart)."
