    Default leaky foundation

    It seems as this is a common discussion. I have 120 year old victorian with 20" thick field stone foundation. There is one area where ground water is coming in when we have saturating rain. My gutters and downspouts do well and are not near this problem area, ground is graded fairly agressive in the area against foundation, I would rather stop the water outside rather than in, and am open to different ideas and not afraid of excavating if it will do the job. The ovrall site is fairly flat ground so if french drain is idea, where does it drain to? Is there a spray on rubber membrane to seal the stone below grade, outside? I have looked at sheet material, but with uneven stone surface that is not practical. Thanks
