Data I have and its not substantiated is that he was born either 1832 or 1827 in Ore, Sussex, England, his father John born 1798 in Hurstpierpoint Sussex England and died Sep 15 1889 in NSW Australia, mother name Kitty born 1796 died unknown.

his marriage
1878/391 Maria Ann Sykes Orlando Gorringe, although that might be a registration in the nxt quarter

i have 3 siblings listed as Eliza dob 1821, William 1833, and Edward 1837, given the date spread between the children there may have been more than the 4.

hope that helps
