I have now more "proof" that my Greenwich pensioner 3x gr grandfather was an officer of the Royal Navy. His daughter's marriage registration certificate lists him as such. I am requesting guidance on where to search for records of his service as his name: John HAWKINS,has caused a paid researcher to decline the challenge. I know he was born in Gosport, Hampshire in 1790 but he married and raised his family in Southwark, London area. All input appreciated.

I don't know whether you may be able to glean some information from here:

http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/familyhistory/guide/navy/default.htm

it might be of some help, although it's possible that the records didn't start earlier enough to list him.
