    I believe that he had three "jobs"; a retired police officer, a Compulsory Officer, aka School Board Man, or Whipper In ( made sure that the pupils attended school) and Estate Agent.

    Just a thought and The R N museum may shed more light on the subject. In 1853 the RN brought in the idea of Continuous Service for sailors. I imagine that this raised the problem of what to do...
