Looking for family of Joseph TERRY, born in UK abt 1816, emigrated to NZ in 1854

Joseph Terry is my great-grandfather.

Joseph was born (I think, not sure) in Kent, England in abt 1816. On 30 Aug 1840 he married Maria Till in Southwark, Middlesex, England, age 24. In 1854 he and Maria emigrated to New Zealand, and settled in Greytown. Maria died shortly after they arrived.

On 5 Apr 1860 he married Anne Freeman in Greytown. He had 8 children with Anne Freeman: George Terry (10 May 1861), Joseph Terry (25 Dec 1864), Robert Terry (14 Feb 1865), Annie Terry (25 Mar 1867), William Freeman Terry (23 Apr 1869), Janie Terry (1871), Mary Ann Terry (1873) and Thomas Walter Terry (Apr 1875).

Joseph died on 9 Aug 1884, Joseph Terry in Wellington, New Zealand, age 68. He was buried on 11 Aug 1884 in Greytown.

I am looking for Joseph's parents, siblings and other UK relatives (if any). I know about his life in New Zealand, but am struggling to find anything about his UK family before he emigrated aged 38 years. Can anyone help?
