Care needs to be taken. I think there are two Stainer Canhams, The foreman who died in 1826, and the shipwright who died in 1841. The master shipwright at Leith is almost certainly the later, who's will states " Inspector of Shipwrights in Her Majesty's Dockyard Woolwich" a grade way above that of Foreman.
