This search and research of my ancestry, genealogy and family tree takes me all over the place.
As I stated in Part 350s I had found the 1855 Burial Registration of who I believe is gg-granduncle Thomas Smith. All-things-being-equal the name and the age tie to the Baptism information as described in Part 90s.
The issue that I have, at this point of time, and purely from my lack of knowledge is what is the word “Architect” doing in the column allocated for “Abode”? Transcribing and reading the name immediately above, it also seems to be a misplaced error. It appears that the recording agent, possibly the Rector J.A. Anton, wrote the place of “Abode” for No. 807, Robert Thomas as “H.M.S. Mariner”. This does look like an occupation, and not an abode.
Above is the image of Page 136 from the Burial Register of the Parish Register of Saint George as downloaded from Items 18-19 of the microfilm FHL .
And my transcription -

And now another question… If gg-grandfather James, Jr. and gg-granduncle Thomas were both Architects, s it possible that both had been educated in the same school? In England? Or Scotland? Or where? Something to think about…
