Was he born in New York?

I am looking for a birth of William Henry Startin B 1840 New York

I have been unable to find a birth in England for him and most censuses have him recorded as born New York . The 1841 England census has him born Birmingham, England 7 months old - From 1851 to 1901 always New York or America 1911 England!!!

His brother Charles b1839 Birmingham,
Father James Startin b1818
mother Ann Parker b 1819
Not been able to find them as passengers and it seems such a short period of time between the births of Charles and William for them to have travelled to and from America!!!

I would appreciate any help on this as I have been looking for 3 years now
:'(
 
Could he possibly have been adopted.:confused:

There is a birth reg in 1845 Birmingham for another William Henry Startin.

I know it's 4 years later than his birth, but could they have registered him as their own.

Wild thoughts, I know.;):)

Quite a wild thought, but one I had not considered. I suppose we cannot rule anything out as I am completly foxed. I suppose if he had been born in America there has to be some way of finding out!!!

Thanks for the input, much appreciated.
