I have an Abraham King I am researching, who marries Diana Veal. They baptise 5 children between 1824 and 1831. The first child, Hannah, is baptised: DEVON: Plymouth, Batter Street (Presbyterian)
The subsequent 4 children all have father's occupation in their baptism records which is Royal Mariner and are baptised in Charles the Martyr and East Stonehouse.
My definite direct ancestor Ann(a) / Hannah King is I think Abraham and Diana's first child. On her first marriage certificate in 1852 she states her father Abraham is a labourer. Following him through the census, Abraham appears in 1841 and 1851 as a labourer but in 1861 he is a Greenwich Pensioner.
Of course there is more than one Abraham King in Plymouth at this time and it is easy to get confused, so my question is - is it feasible that a Royal Mariner would become a labourer after service and then become a Greenwich Pensioner? As if's not I'm obviously going down the wrong route!
