Maurice de Balmain born 1848 St Joseph Reunion

Classification: Query
Surnames: de Balmain
I am looking for any records about my ancestor Maurice de Balmain. He was born in St Joseph in 1848. He left Reunion 24 years later and lived in New Caledonia for 8 years, returned to Reunion then immigrated to Australia.

On his Naturalisation papers he does not give either of his parent's names but says his father was a "gentleman".

I would appreciate any help or suggestions of where to look for his birth records.
