Careers of Royal Marine sergeants of the Napoleonic Wars period are difficult to follow.  I have a relative, named Abel Helps (real name!) who joined in 1797, and by 1805 was a sergeant. In 1805 he was on the gun brig Basilisk, mostly crawling along the coast of Belgium and northwest France to keep Napoleon bottled up. It had to be the small ships that did that for the invasion fleet at Boulogne - not the ships of the line. Then in 1809 he was transferred to the captured frigate Nyaden, and the ship lost 47 to yellow fever in the Caribbean. In 1812 he moved to HMS Saracen, and a very active career doing amphibious landings, capturing one island after another off Dubrovnik (Ragusa then) in Croatia, and then Boca Kotor in Montenegro. In 1814 the Saracen was first British ship into Venice's harbour, anchoring right off the Piazetta. In 1815 he was payed off. Became a gardener back in Wiltshire. Emigrated when things got bad to Ontario. Homesteaded at Con. 1 Lot 1, Douro Township, Peterborough. Died 1861.
