It is not known if there is any relationship between Peter Pickingill and the Ann and Thomas Pittingale who where in the Crown Inn too.

 

In 1853, Peter Pickengill, signed up for duty in the Royal Navy and served 1 year on the ship H.M.S. Monarch.

From the Register of Seamens Service, we get the following informations:

Apparently Peter Pickingill lied about his birth date in order to sign up.  He joined in on November 12, 1853 was discharged the following year on November 14, 1854.  The whole time was with the ship H.M.S. Monarch.

The H.M.S. Monarch was an 84-gun second rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, launched on December 18, 1832 at Chatham Dockyard and was broken up in 1866.

The Crimean War lasted from October 1853 to February 1856.   Peter Pickingill joined the Royal Navy because of the Crimean War.
