Default James rayne or ryan

Hi, I need help in finding information on my great grandfather James Rayne who in 1863 was on a ship in Devonport because his first son was born there, then in 1868 his second son was born in Gibraltar but there is no birth record of this and then in 1872 his third son Himalaya was born on hms Himalaya but I just can't find any information on James rayne... Family think he may have been called Ryan but changed his name... Can anyone help me on where to look. Please

I can only find one record for James Rayne here, born Newcastle 1st July 1835. He joined on 2nd April 1855.
There are several James Ryan's (narrowed down to 12 by dates here)
Do you have any further information about him, place and date of birth, etc.
Good luck with your search.

Old Ships: Raleigh 1963, Collingwood 63, Ark Royal 64, Collingwood 67, Undaunted 68, Porstmouth FMG 70, Exmouth 72, Victory 1974 as JEM, EM, OEM, LOEM, POOEL. Then 28 years in the Fire Service

Thank you.
I don't know any more about him but if I find anything I will let you know. It is a complete puzzle.
