I wonder if someone would mind pointing me in the right direction.

Having only started my family search about 2 weeks ago I am still unsure about how to find birth certificates etc.
I have managed to obtain sufficient information to show (much to my surprise) that my great grandfather Thomas Hewetson was born in Singapore (1833) and my great
great grandfather William Hewetson was born in Bencoolen Sumatra (approx 1800) and was described as a 'stores clerk' .
Can someone explain how I could search for Williams parents.
Some of the information I have.( I also have siblings etc)
William b 1800 Bencoolen, m Catherine Boardman? 1823 at Bencoolen and Charlotte Cudlipp about 1830 at Singapore
Thomas b 1833 Singapore, m Catherine Charlotte Elrington 1863 Creswick Australia,
I would greatly appreciate any guidance you can offer.
