Looking for George UPWARD of Cairns 1876

Upward Street, Cairns
Parramatta Park, North Queensland..
Named after George Upward, an early shipping agent and a storekeeper, from 1876 He owned a sawmill in Upward Street for a short time in the late 1870s. He also owned the vessel Fitzroy, which he purchased from W.B. Ingham. When the Cairns economy slumped he left the district.(This information supplied by Cairns Library)

This is all the information I can find on this George Upward. I am keen to know his DOB and country of birth (England or Australia) and where did he go when he left Cairns. Was he married and have children?
