My 3rd great grandfather, Charles James Sanderson, was born around 1804 in New York according to the 1851 and 1861 England Census (and some other references I've been able to find).
The earliest record I am able to find of him is his first marriage, in 1825, in England. I am able to trace most of his life in England, including his second marriage, the birth of his 12 children, his will, found in the London Archives, through to his death and burial in London, England in 1866.
What I have not been able to figure out are the names of his parents, his place of birth, and his date of birth, or when he left New York and arrived in England.
Does anyone have a suggestion on where I might look to find Charles' record of birth (since I don't know if he was born in New York City or simply New York State)? How I might discover the names of his parents?
