      Hello Christine
      thanks so much for the tip  its seems as if you have hit the nail on the head, the date of birth that I have for Alexander Connor taken from the headstone is 24 Dec 1831   the year is often out a bit but I am sure it is the same person, now atleast I have a starting point.
      unfortunately there were not documents handed down from him and I need to go to the archives to dig out more info with regards to his estate etc, its quite a lengthy proceedure and there is not much on line, at least now I know I am going in the right direction,
      thanks once again for the info

      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.

      Researching Connor family and found my husbands great grandfather Alexander Connor b abt1831 came from St Helena, wife Mary Ann b abt 1828, some of the children state place of birth as St Helena or England
      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
      I would be gratefull for any additional info or advice as to where I might find additional info
