Can't help you as to how Phillip Neyle arrived in NSW but he appears on the 1833 NSW Calender & PO Directory.
Neyle, Phillip, Paramatta.

Early newspapers (1829)have P.F.Neyle at Macquarie St Paramatta with paddocks so he was in Sydney by 1829 at least and looks like doing fairly well.

Hello DebN,
I'm not related but I have read that Philip Frocham Neyle 1805-1894 migrated to Australia in 1828. Now I do not recall what ship but I believe it was a private voyage. His grandfather was Philip Neyle who died in 1812. He was a landholder in Netherton Devon and owned estates called Lower Coomb and Woodcombe.He's buried in East Allington, South Devon. Your Philip Frocham Neyle appears on an early Pioneer Register managed by the Maitland Family History Circle. He was living at Louth Park (Maitland) in 1859, when his daughter Eliza married Hutchings. I'm not sure how much information they have (perhaps only decendants) but worth a call to them.
When P.F.Neyle married Mary Stiles at Parramatta in 1836 he was listed as coming from Williams River (Dungog) although he had the land in Macquarie Street Parramatta from 1829.
I doubt he sailed from Devon via the USA but I suppose if your wealthy anything is possible. Anyway 1828 is the date.
