Birth Certificate


I am French and live in France and I am doing research about my family. So, I would like to know where and how I can get the birth certificate of my great, great grandfather. His name was James Lowes and he was born in Rye on 1st March 1804.

Thank you for your help,

Sylvie Crelier (maiden name Lowes)

    Dear Sylvie,
    Would he be the same James Lowes who married Mary Ann Graves (born Great Mongeham, Kent 1807) and who died in Boulogne-sur-mer on 27 April 1866?
    Regards,
    Matthew Graves
