#1. I remember seeing him before.

#2. I remember to have seen him before.

I remeber that I saw him before.
Thank you Welkins. So they all mean the same, huh... I didn't know that.

Hi,

#1. I remember seeing him before. OK. I remember the act of seeing him before.

#2. I remember to have seen him before. This is not grammatically correct.

#3. I remember having seen him before. OK. 'I have seen him' means "I have the result of seeing him". So, your sentence means 'I remember having the result of seeing him before".


Best wishes, Clive
Feathers#1. I remember seeing him before. This refers to the past that you did.

#2. I remember to have seen him before. ( I do not think this is correct)

#3. I remember having seen him before. ( I don't think this is correct.)

If you want 'remeber plus infintive'. I think you can say:

I must remeber to see him tomorrow because I need his help.

Do they mean the same thing?

Thank you again Welkins, and thank you as always, Clive.

I see... I'd better not to use the sentence #2 in any case. And I'd need some special context to use the sentence #3. The problem is, I've read the following sentence in Three men in a boat (by J.K. Jerome):
I don't think I ever remember to have seen Moulsey lock, before, with only one boat in it. (in the first paragraph of Ch.7)
That's why I asked this question.

Hi,

Yes, but as you probably know, this book was originally published in 1889. Today such a structure seems very old-fashioned, even archaic. #3 would be the norm.

Best wishes, Clive
Hi Feathers,

How are you?

#1 and #3 mean the same.

#2 is wrong under all circuimstances.

It would be correct to say:

I remember/ed to see him, which means I will/did not forget to go to his place.

I had remembered to have seen here before I moved houses.No.

I had remembered to see here before I moved houses. Yes.

I had remembered to have it seen to. Yes.

It is correct. I strongly suggest doing some research before posting. We should try not to confuse others, but verify the facts first.

You could search at Google with:
"remember having seen * before"
