JOHN HOY married FRANCES BULL 1853 London

I am seeking the descendants of this marriage. My g grandfather was SAMUEL HOY born 1850 in London, only child of John Hoy and his first wife MARY BENNETT. Mary died soon after childbirth. John then married FRANCES BULL in 1853, they had a large family and lived in London. Samuel was sent to live with relatives by the name of BULL who owned a grocers shop in Edinburgh Scotland. He first trained as a footman and later ran away to sea arriving in New Zealand in 1874.
Although Sam did not tell his family much about his early life, he did say that his grandmother was a BURNS and that he had an uncle in Canada and another in Africa.

I am trying to trace both Samuel's forebears and his father's second family so would appreciate any help that anyone can give me.
