About 1839 he started corresponding with Margaret Dennison (1818-1878) and they were married in 1841.
Unlike many local wives, Margaret did not go to sea with her husband.
Instead, she continued to correspond with him, the letters often not reaching her husband for months.
He wrote to her frequently whenever he was in port, no matter where in the world.
