Looking for birth information and genealogy of Robert Channing born 2 December 1785. He was possibly from Dorchester. He lived in Marstrand, Sweden from 1801 until his death in 1857. On his children’s birth certificates, he is listed as British Vice-Consul. Records show he was a “sea captain”, but not if he was merchant marine nor Royal Navy. There are several of us, in Sweden and in the USA, trying to solve this genealogy mystery. Any help would be greatfully appreciated.
