TPB was born in Lewtrenchard, Devon, in May 1839. He died in Plymouth on 10 October, 1872. He was a Metropolitan police officer and almost certainly worked at Devonport dockyard. His place of death was 25 Clarence Street, Plymouth, an address shared with the informant, John Smith. I do not think they were related and suspect the accommodation was some type of lodging house. TPB had been suffering from a heart complaint for at least 12 months. I would like help to trace him in 1871. In particular I would like to know if he was married.
