Ofiicially you had to be at least 20, with a minimum of 6 years service, to take the exam. Between 20 & 25 seems to be the norm, but there is then often a delay of years, especially during peace times, before actually receiving a commission.
If I had to guess this Richard is probably between 20 & 30 in 1740.

I see, thank you. At about what age would most sailors have received their Lieutenant passing certificates?

(There were at least 33 Richards in this family, which makes tracing them a mind bender.)

Sorry, this Richard Haddock is not related, as far as I know, to the admiral. Just a coincidence of name. If we knew more it would be shown here.
The link is correct, the only only available digital version of the commissioned sea officers is on ancestry.com, other than here of course. I transcribed every entry for you.

How was this Capt. Richard related to Admiral Sir Richard Haddock (1629-1714/15)? This is not his son Richard, who became Comptroller of the Navy after Sir Richard died. Who were this Richard's (d. 1749) parents?

Also, there's a problem with the link to the CSORN website on this and other pages--it directs to Ancestry.com.
