Completed with Thanks SEARLE Jeremiah 1816 West Monkton
« on: Friday 26 June 09 20:44 BST (UK) »
Jeremiah Searle B. 1816 West Monkton Somerset married Jane (?) (from Ireland) lists his occupation in the 1861 Census Taunton St James, as a Chelsea Pensioner.  Would this mean that Jeremiah Searle had been a soldier?  Why would he have been a Chelsea Pensioner? I would be very grateful for advice as to where I might look for a possible army service record.

Many thanks

I was going to suggest that you check the National Archives site http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/a2a/ and put his name into the search engine myself to find an entry, but not about his being a soldier, you can do a further check yourself and see what there is, but there is an entry, reference DD\X\CCE held at the Somerset Archive and Record Office

TAUNTON ST MARY
Premises in Holway Lane sold by Wm {William?} Hayman to Jeremiah L Searle..

might be interesting?

1871 census has Elizabeth Gratton as "Wife's Mother".
Might be noteworthy?

Hello Captain 2,

It is possible that Jeremiah was in the of the volunteer militia that existed in those days. There were a number of these in Somerset, Yeomanry and such like as well as the local militia groups.

I know of a book which lists the members of such military bodies and will look at this in the library. I will let you know if I find anything on Jeremiah Searle.

The description of "Chelsea Pensioner" suggests to me that Jeremiah did some military service to qualify for a pension from this body.

Jo

Hello Angie,

I have looked at the book with details of militia volunteers etc but this is dated 1805. It is too early for your relative in that case.

I looked at the Somerset groups for anyone by the name of Searle but couldn't find an entry.

Jo.

Hi Jo,

Thank you so much for looking, really appreciated.  I have now managed to find Jane Grattan b. 1832 Kilkenny, Ireland ( Jeremiah's wife) all thanks to Rootschat pointing me in the right direction.  I will try other avenues for Jeremiah.  Very many thanks once again. Angie

I have just joined this forum because of seeing the thread about Jeremiah Searle who is my friends 2 or 3 times great grandfather, sorry but it's been a while since I did any work on this tree. Things are a bit hectic at the moment but I wanted to let you know that someone out here has some info if you need it. I see it's a while since your posting how are you doing with the Searle's.  Lynne
