Looking for Olver's from Cornwall/Devonshire

I am looking for any information on the family of John Hodge Olver and his wife Rebecca both lived in Bere Alston Devonshire. There son Thomas Hodge Olver migrated to Australia with two of his sons followed later by his second wife Jane Trewhalla nee Robins and youngest son. They lived in the Daylesford/Hepburn area in Victoria Australia. He also had several other children who remained in Devon and did not migrate. Any information about this family would be fantastic, Thomas Hodge Olver was born at St Martin By Looee in Cornwall so possibly there is other relatives living there. They immigrated around 1880's. Can you Help

Regards, charzycat

Vickers/Bryant England to Australia

Looking for information about James Herbert Vickers and Mary Elizabeth (Eliza) bryant born England circa 1854. Immigrated to Australia had children born Armadale, Victoria Australia in 1885, 1888 and 1891. Need help finding out James and Elizabeths births and marraige if any and also information re immigration to Australia.
Mary's parents listed on death index for Victoria Australia as father JNO Bryant and mother Unknown Christopherson. Mary died in 1923 and is buried in the Necropolis Springvale, Victoria Australia.

Family Story told by my grandfather, son of the above couple was that James was a butler in England who worked for Mary's parents and both James and Mary left for Australia and paid there own way and Mary was disinherited from her family.

Possible link to the Bryant family who owned a coach making business in Birmingham and later an automobile business in the 1950's. Owner being a JH or JW Bryant & sons. Also a relative was an Ernest Harvey Bryant also of Birmingham area who lived at Barnt Green, Bromsgrove, however unsure of the actual relationship between Mary and Ernest.

Any information about them would be most grateful.
