      A lot of people were indentured servants or slaves on St Helena. At least, up until the 1830s. They were then set "Free". The slaves were mainly African or East Asian (eg Chinese) and took Anglicised names from their owners or by their own choice. You can get a blood/gene test done to check your ethnic roots.

      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.
