Looking for a sailor!

Looking for any information about my 4xg grandfather Peter Hood, a sailor who married Anne Greenslade in Cathedral of St John the Baptist, St John's Newfoundland on 28 November 1813. He had two children Peter, b Sept 10,1814 and Andrew William b on April 25 1816. Both sons were baptised in St John's Cathedral. I cannot find any evidence of Peter Hood either prior to his marriage or after the birth of his sons.The birth records of his sons show he was a sailor, but I'm not sure if that means he was in the navy or merchant marines. Also not sure where he originates from, as he only appears on the Newfoundland records for his marriage and his son's christenings. I'm not sure where to look for information about sailors/ seamen. Any help would be really greatly appreciated as I've hit a brick wall! Cheers, Barbara
