    Licensed victualler 
    • 'licensed victualler' at the "Lord Nelson" in 1861 census, 'Beer seller' (1871 census, no name of pub shown but at " West Street i.e. the address of the Lord Nelson), 'retired publican' (1881), 'formerly licensed victualler' in probate calendar entry.
      Post Office Diretory's of 1862, 1867 and 1874 show that William was publican at the Lord Nelson in Blue Town. (image of 1862 entry seen for myself on TheGenealogist website, viewed 26 Sep 2016; info. from all 3 seen on the UK pub history website)
      In 1861 it appears the "Lord Nelson" may have been providing more than a drink to male customers. In addition to William and his wife and a servant, three lodgers were present. Three young, unmarried women (age 19 to 26), none with an occupation shown. I think we can all guess the profession they were following!

      Details from PR entry (image on FMP, viewed 4 April 2019)

      The entry shows William as a 'Gentleman' - he presumably felt he could use this description as he was living on his own means, also that he was resident in Tunstall. The latter is clearly untrue: just 2 months before he was living in Sheerness as he had been for years, and he was living at the same address when he died the year after this marriage. The marriage was also by licence - it seems they wished to marry quietly. Was this because they were already living together (although with Harriett as 'housekeeper', according to the census)? This would seem out of character given William's earlier life, but perhaps it was part of now trying to look like a gent.

    1. [S47] Teynham Parish Registers (KFHS transcribed data), Kent Family History Society, accessed 21 Mar 2012), entry for the marriage of George Goatham to Sarah Hunt. (Reliability: 3), 21 Mar 2012.
      576 1819 03 May George GOATHAM otp Sarah HUNT otp B Wm Hunt / Eliz Hunt
      There was also a marriage of a Sarah Hunt to a Richard Friend in Teynham in 1829, but given that this Sarah would by then have been aged about 38 I don't think it was likely to have been her.
