Traditionally a boat's officers were the master, boatswain, carpenter and cook.

Thanks.....
WHJ had been Master at the time of the 1881 census, so "Bo'Sn" was a retrograde step.

MODIFY: Turns out it was not just an average fishing trip but a voyage to Newfoundland with a cargo of limestone!  :'(

Henry Jackman, mariner, married Catherine Gibbs Atkinson 31/3/1832 All Saints, Brixham.  Besides William Henry b.1839 and Louisa ca.1843 they appear to have 2 earlier children with the same names.   As already mentioned, a William Henry bp.25/1/1835 (who must have died 1835-1839) and, I believe, a Louisa bp.1/1/1837 (mothers name transcribed as Caroline??) buried 14/7/1840 Brixham.

Thank you Annette.
My research centered around Susan Ann, the second wife of Wm H Jackman, bap: 1839, however, you raise an interesting point about his mother's  name, which I believe may have been Caroline not Catherine. I have not seen an image of that marriage entry.... don't know how clear it is?

The bap register page for Wm H 1839, is a total mess, though it does give actual birth dates, so I can well imagine mother's name being wrong there, and she is transcribed in at lest one census on familysearch as Caroline, which makes sense to me, given the baptism "Caroline Louisa" of a daughter to Wm & Susan in 1873.

Thank you for your interest.

Hello Benjamin, and welcome to Rootschat.
