A very warm welcome to rootschat. Prince Edward Island newspaper archives
https://islandnewspapers.ca/islandora/search/%22Thomas%20guard%22?type=dismax

I searched for "thomas guard" (including the "   ") - produced 5 hits. Click on heading in red to view page. Two hits certainly your "Guard" family.

The search field is at top of screen - "james guard" produces a number of hits.

Roger Townshend, 1708 - 1760
"He served as Governor of the North Yarmouth garrison from 1745-1760."

THE HISTORY AND ANTIQUITIES OF THE ANCIENT BURGH OF YARMOUTH - pub 1742
" Whereas diverse of the inhabitants of the town of Great Yarmouth (besides the garrison by me there placed ...." (early 1644)

THE HISTORY OF PARLIAMENT
Roger Townshend 1708-1760
" ...; gov. Yarmouth Castle 1745-d(eath)

HISTORY OF PARLIAMENT
Robert Brudenell 1726-68
"On 6 Aug 1760 he wrote to Newcastle that Col Rog Townshend, governor of North Yarmouth Castle, was dying, and asked to succeed him because, he wrote, " ... though the income is but £182 10s a year, it will be of great assistance to us." But the Townshend family had claims to Yarmouth, so Newcastle obtained for Brudenell the Governorship of Cowes Castle instead. ...". Being granted Cowes a coincidence?

Post #8 has both Yarmouth Castle and N Yarmouth showing a value of "10s" - but there is no description of what that figure applies to. The maximum is £900 (Berwick and Holy Island), the minimum 5s (Portland Castle).
I did note "Wight (Isle of) E. of Portsmouth, Gov. £1 7s 4d 3f"

Yet to join up the dots.

The FindMyPast Consular/Overseas birth entry includes "Line Number 97" - this I believe is the GRO reference number to be entered when ordering the certificate from the GRO.
