Edward Elliott - My great great grandfathers twin.

What I know at the moment is that Edward was born in 1865, and as a child it says he is from Bettws, Carmarthen, however, his twin brother, when older, puts his birth place down as Swansea, Glamorganshire.

This is the info I have right now:

Samuel Elliott 41 Swansea Railway engine driver
Mary 37 Llanelly
Thomas 6 Bettws, Carmarthen
Edward 6 Bettws
Mary N 4 Bettws
Robert 2 Bettws
John 1 Bettws

Samuel 50 Swansea, rlwy train driver
Mary 47 llanelly
Mary 14 Carmarthen
Robert 13 Carmarthen
John 11 Carmarthen
Samuel 8 Swansea
David 4 Abergavenny
William C 2 Abergavenny
Thomas and Edward are not on the census.

There is a Edward Elliott 16 Boy Cl 2 at HMS Impregnable at Stoke Dameral, Devon

I'm most interested in working forwards in time, and any information on him in the 1891/1901/1911 census would be very handy. I have no idea if he moved back to wales after his stint in the Navy, or stayed in England, sorry - nor about any wives/children. This may be a hard one, sorry.
