William Dickers UK Origins
Looking for possible UK origins of a William Dickers. I have the following New York City info for him:

1847 Directory - Seaman at 88 James Street
1850 Directory - Rigger at 5 Lewis Street
1850, Age 26, Rigger, born England.
Married to Ellen (born 1830, NY).
1860, Age 33, Rigger, born England.
Married to Catherine (born 1837, IRE) maiden name Beechinor.
With a son Joseph (born 1856, NY) who could have been the son of Ellen or Catherine.
Birth from the above between 1824-27.
His arrival and marriage in New York must be prior to 1850 but no more on this. If Ellen was age 16 when they married then 1846 is the earliest date for this.
Can't find any manifest info for his arrival in the USA to give me any clues. Possible maritime connection?
Maybe the name of his son Joseph (E.) could somehow link to a father for William.
Any suggestions welcome.
