Looking for information about Edwin Henry Petty. He was part of the Victualling Crew. I know he was single 25 years old and was buried at sea. Does anyone know anything about his relatives? I believe he lived in Southampton.
Thanks

I believe I am related to Edwin but am a little intrigued that, although research has said he is single, a weeding ring was amongst his personal effects.

Michelle,
Greetings - interesting question about the wedding ring.
One could speculate endlessly about why he had such a ring with him.
Perhaps he was thinking of marriage on his return to Southampton?
Perhaps it was his birth mothers ring?
Perhaps it was his step mothers?
Perhaps we shall never know.
Best regards
