A birth in Ruan would have been registered in the Helston Registration District (RD) but nothing is showing on freebmd

There is a Truro birth for a James Henry Brown in 1874 and Truro covered Ruanlanihorne

Births December qtr 1874 
James Henry Brown     Truro  5c   143

If this is the correct birth - his mothers maiden name was Davey.  Freebmd has an 1874 marriage in St Austell for Henry Brown and Mary Ann Davey

www.freebmd.org.uk

You will find him on the 1881 census which is free to search here

Thanks so much Carol.. That is the right family. I didnt have James definite bd so that is awesome. They had three daughters, Nellie Dora and Mary..  Mary Davey and Henry James Brown had James, Arthur Constantine.. I would really like to find out how my Ggrandfather died... He died so young.i have a date of July 1910 in Truro.. But i got that from ancestry so want to confirm it. I think Henry had a brother John and sister Anna(Annie) , dont know who she married. I know  they lived in St.Agnes, Cornwall in James Henry's family home.

To find his cause of death you would have to buy a copy of his death cert.  You can do this online via the GRO website and it costs 9.25 GBP

I am on my ipad at the moment so don't have the link to the GRO website but will post it tomorrow

I think the July date for the burial refers to the quarter - July-Sept 1910. He was buried 23 Sep 1910 in Stile Field Cemetery, St Agnes.
http://www.cornwall-opc-database.org/search-database/more-info/?t=burials&id=2622657

James Henry was baptised 14 Feb 1875 at Ruan Lanihorne, son of Henry, labourer, & Mary Ann , abode Treworga.
Arthur Constantine was baptised 6 Aug 1876 at St Stephen in Brannel, son of Henry, farm labourer & Mary Ann, abode Philleigh, dob noted as 23 May.

Cornwall online parish clerk database is very useful for research
