Can't help with solid details but you might want to check Hoxham. I've never heard of that place, but there is a Hexham, which is half way between Newcastle and Maitland, and next door to Raymond Terrace.

NSW BMD most likely recorded Hoxham instead of Hexham, now that you have pointed it out. I will amend.

You might also want to check out this Flickr site:

There are photos of many of the BDM registers of Christ Church Cathedral. You might find your events in there.

It isn't indexed, so it might be a case of scrolling through.

I may be able to help you out if you still need it. Alfred Martin STEEL, Lucy Jane's brother is on the family tree I'm researching. I have some details on the family back to lucy's GF James STEEL and GM Mary Greenwell, as well as some new info I am still confirming which takes the line back another 4G's to Michael STEEL born abt 1685.
