He was committed by William Chafin, Clerk and entered prison the next day. He was kept by the County and was orderly in his behaviour.5 His sentence expired on 15 February 1794. He was discharged by the order of William Chafin, Clerk on condition of entering to serve with the Royal Navy. He entered with Lieutenant Lothbridge but the ship is not known. However it was likely to have been at anchor at Weymouth Roads as the majority of prisoners sent to the Navy were taken there.6 On 6 April 1795 Ambrose resided in Ashmore. This was at the time of his marriage.7,8 He married Charlotte BENNETT on 6 April 1795 in Tollard Royal, Wiltshire.2,7,8,9,10 On 29 August 1801 he was a gamekeeper .

Text From Source: "Ambrose Rideout was a gamekeeper according to the shipping record of the arrival of his son James or he was a seaman according to the death certificate for James. The occupation "seaman" seems quite out of character and was either a guess or an euphemism for someting else. The informant of James' death was his son-in-law, William Jenkins, who supplied quite accurate information in some cases but did not know the name of James' mother."
