He went back to sea. As a naval commander, he spent a good deal of time in North America between 1755 and 1768, but managed to be in England to father children in 1763, '64, '67, and '68 and then left for the Pacific. He returned in 1771, had his fifth child and began his second voyage in 1772, returned in 1775, had a sixth child and began his third voyage in 1776.
