Gentleman's magazine 1853
"Aug 30. At Montserrat, Captain Booth, the governor, his wife, with the only medical officer on the island, and several others, carried off by fever."

I believe that after he left the Trinculo, J.R.Booth went to Sydney, New South Wales and then to Richmond, Tasmania. He returned to England in 1845. He was appointed Lieutenant-Governor of Montserrat, West Indies in 1851 and died there of cholera in 1853
