Here is a bit more info for you.

Your Bennett family arrived in Victoria on the "Annie Wilson" as unassisted passegers in November 1864. They are recorded as:

Edward - aged 29 years.

Mary A - aged 28 years.

Unnamed infant -

Sarah A - aged 3 years.

Edward - aged 5 years.

Ophelia - aged 7 years.

William - aged 9 years.

Source: Unassisted Passenger List To Victoria 1852-1923.
Port B, Fiche 238, Page 004.

I expect this will be the correct family.
