The India Office Family Search shows his birth record:
I've been out of St Helena research for many years, so not sure how to interpret parent[s] listed as "Catherine, free"
I don't know if the actual record would have any more information, or if they've transcribed it in its entirety.
It's not much but might give you a clue.

children, Kathleen Susan b 1857 John Florence b1858 Robert Laing b 1862
Mary Ann b1865 The family settled in South Africa, can pick them up on the 1882 voters list
