    Re: Cloudy Weather Johnson's Double Chronometer Method

    We know that he was baptised on January 9, 1828.  We can safely assume he was born late in 1827.  I have found a secondary source reference to 1827 but with no actual birth date.  Here is a link to the date of baptism and some brief biological information.  (Page 291 if the full link does not work).

    This is consistent with the earlier post here:

    He was alive in 1907 because he signed the foreword to the 5th edition of "How to find the time at sea in less than a minute" as "Dartmouth 1907".  Bibliographies give a year of death of 1909 - without a month and day.

    So it would appear that his life stretched from George IV, through William, Victoria and into Edward VII.
