I suppose that Charles Herman Halsey came to the States from England because he may have been identical to the Charles Halsey in Philadelphia who asked James Monroe to be appointed as American consul in Hamburg in February 1816. The Halsey family of Gaddesden Estate in Hertfordshire, England, had members who were merchants in Hamburg in the 18th century.
