I'm intrigued as to why a 4 year old from inner London was lodging at Tidenham. Have you traced the background of Charles and Hannah Richards for clues, do they have any links to London.
I expect you know that in the early 1800s St Giles was becoming rather infamous as an overcrowded area, especially the slum known as the "rookery", perhaps this why you think his birth may have caused concern within the family.

It may not be relevant, but searching the FreeBMD site for Marriages twixt Corne and Denham gives just one for the whole of their UK database, namely;

Surname First name(s) District Vol Page
Marriages Dec 1877 (>99%)
CORNE Thomas Joseph Holborn 1b 1084
CORNES Thomas Joseph Holborn 1b 1084
Denham Eleanor Holborn 1b 1084
HOOKER Thomas Holborn 1b 1084
Marriott Clara Holborn 1b 1084

So, IF Thos Corne did marry Eleanor Denham, seeing as it took place less than a decade before Jim was born, and as Holborn district is immediately adjacent to St Giles, then it's possible they are his parents and they may themselves warrant further research ?.
