I'm trying to find if my grandfathers birth,It is family say so that he was was born at sea but I cannot find any evidence.I would appreciate any help possible.

I think he may have been born coming from the USA to UK.

His name Charles Henry Gwilliam born 1876 +-1 year.

His mothers name was Mary Jane.

The only place I have seen "born at sea" noted is on the ship manifest itself.

Sometimes it is entered on the last page of the manifests and may just reference a birth at sea...sometimes it is noted on the same line as the mother.

So, you need to locate the manifest listing your grandfather's mother...(sorry, but I am not familiar with the manifests of ships going from the US to UK.)

If it was a British ship it would have to be recorded in the Captain's Log.
