British ancestors or siblings of James COAD

Journal by Elizabeth2ndB

James COAD, was born 1846, somewhere in Cornwall, UK. In 1865, a single man, age 19, he migrated to South Australia aboard the ship Burlington. He listed his British occupation as "miner". Eventually he settled at Inglewood, South Australia. He had a small farm/orchard. He died in 1896 and was buried in the Houghton cemetery in SA.
His wife was Elizabeth NEWSOME, who migrated from Yorkeshire, in 1875 on the ship Trevellyan. Her occupation was given as "domestic servant". They had 7 children together plus one child, John Henry Newsome, who was either Elizabeth's younger brother or son from a former relationship.
COAD appears to be a fairly common name in England. James started a new life and his own family tree in South Australia. There seems to be a common thread amongst several of our S.A. founding male ancestors that nothing is known of their parents although in most case there is fair bit of information regarding their wives'families.
