Navigation etc.

See Lloyd's Song Book - Wellington Guernsey, etc. - pub. in 1846. So original version of song ("The New"... would imply this is a revision?? - though the two would presumably have the same workpage unless they are very significantly different songs) composed and perhaps published by 1846.
