Re: Royal Mariner becomes labourer
Further investigation leads me to think that after Diana did a bunk with James Crocker, having married him in 1834 in Stoke Damerel, Abraham re married a Frances Peckham a widow, both of full age, gave his fathers name as Thomas, which gives his baptism in Silverton on 8.11.1798 parents Thomas and Sarah. (he had a daughter he named Sarah).
Diana calls herself a spinster on her remarriage and he calls himself a widower!! occupation labourer.
by 1861 he is lodging with Richard and Sarah Isaac, so guess Frances deceased by then and he is describing himself as a greenwich pensioner.
