He was an adult (18 or 19), so I don't think consent was needed.
I have tried various permutations of name for naval records, but only only come up with this one. He was George on his school record (probably as his father was named William as well).
I have just looked again at the marriage record and one of the witnesses is 'C. Edgcombe' (his mother's maiden name), so I think I do have the right chap!
Now I am wondering who C. Edgcombe is!
