Mordecai Bennett!

I'm new to this site, can any one help me with the following please?
I'm researching my wife's family history/tree, I have gone back to one of her ancestors called Mordecai Bennett, he maybe for Birmingham. He may have been born around 1771?
He joined the East India Company in around 1789/90, & went off to the Island of St Helena, he served there until his death in 1827 at the age of 56yrs old. In 1791 he went off to Fort St George in Madras in India, he may have left Indiain 1795/96 & may have gone back to St Helena Island! next we find him has Morris/Maurice Bennett! WHY the name change?? Where would he have got the name as MORDECAI from???? & Why the name Change???????:confused:
I can't find him on the Internet!!!! as any one come across him?? I would be most grateful for any help!
