Edward Self
« on: Monday 10 August 20 13:50 BST (UK) »
Hello,

I'm looking to find anything on Edward Self (1829 - 1888). He's only seen on the 1841 and 1881 censuses, the latter of which he is in Littleton Panell near Devizes in Wiltshire, with his occupation given as pensioner. In my experience, this is usually military, and would explain his forty-year absence from records. I've searched FindMyPast but had no luck. He appears to have been born in Littleton Panell, which is part of West Lavington parish.

I'd appreciate any help!

Yes, Iíd just seen that. But still invisible from then to 1881 :( actually 1878, as he registered his motherís death.

My membership has lapsed; could you tell me which medals, with any clasps?

And yes, a terrible war. Iíve seen a few documentaries. I have an ancestor (Edward was the sibling of an ancestor) who was in the Royal Marines during it, and was at the Battle of the Alma. Thankfully he survived too.
