Looking for any details of parents of Hercules Robert ROSS, (1800-1873)

Looking for evidence to support this.

Looking for details of their births, deaths, other possible children as well as parents of these two individuals)

Might Hercules Robert Ross (1800-1873) have been the son of (or otherwise related to) Hercules Ross (1767-1843), who came to the Cape in 1795 and became Deputy Paymaster-General (see the reference to him in volume 1 of the Cape Diaries of Lady Anne Barnard)?

Hercules Ross (1767-1843) was the son of Colin Ross (1734-1799), a Hamburg physician.

Colin Ross was the brother of yet another Hercules Ross (1745-1816), a Scottish merchant who made a fortune in Jamaica (see his Wikipedia entry), and the son of John Ross (1705-1753), an exciseman of Port Glasgow.
