Hi everyone, im really hoping someone can help me.  This has been my brickwall for some time now and I dont seem to be getting anywhere.  It is rumoured that my Great Grandfather Charles Underwood Lloyd was born on a boat heading for India. I cannot seem to find a birth record for him.  His father is listed on his marriage cert as Edward Thomas Lloyd and again I cannot find a birth for him either. Edward married a lady called Jane Wilson Cooper.  I do know that Charles Underwood died in Bristol in approx 1939.   I have found Charles Underwood on 1881 and 1901 census both show he was born in Allahabad India (British parentage).   I would love some help in finding out what they were doing in India?   Thanks
