Oxford Boatman Records

Hi, I have an Ancestor, Thomas Bustin Born 1819 Wolvercott who's occupation varies between Ag Labourer and Boatman according to baptism of his children, is there any records anywhere of which canal boat he would have worked on please? His mother Elizabeth (Nee Markham) was a coal merchant in 1851 census so maybe he worked on a coal carrying barge?
