Some time since we made contact. Have just found on ancestry a death Record for Richard Isum b 1802. Died Skibbereen July-Sep 1882. Also Griffith's Valuation showing him in 1853 at Castletownend, Castlehaven, Co Cork
*******Also a Marriage for A Louisa Jane Isum 1870 Skibbereen. ???????????

Based on Tony's findings that Julia's father was also a Coast Guard I checked the index and found that Richard Isum joined the CG Service from HMS Java & Boudicia. From his Nomination Number (5234) I worked out that this must have been some time in 1835, so I checked the Nomination Book in ADM 175/78 and found that it was on the 7 February 1835, his first posting being to Hove.
From this it should be possible to trace his entire CG career, and with a bit of luck, if he was still in England in 1841, find him in the Census.
You could also order his Pension Application from the NA to establish his earlier naval career:
