Captain William Scott, Leith

I've been researching my husband's side of the family for some year, but can't seem to get far with this ancestor - probably because of the name! He was born in Glasgow around 1817 and moved to the Edinburgh area where he married Mary Amelia Lawrence in 1840. They lived in Leith and had three children, one of whom was my husband's g-g-grandmother. That's about all I know, except Captain Scott is shown on the Census in 1901 as staying at a boarding house in Barry, S Wales, some 5 miles from his daughter's home. Where and when he died, I don't know or what happened to his other children(Mary Scott and another William Scott). Have tried Scotland's People but no real success and if anyone has any info or can help, it would be greatly appreciated. Captain Scott was also a Trinity House Pilot. Thanks again.
