Hi I need help finding a marriage in England

Henry GRIGGS was born in Ickleton Cambridgeshire England in 1824 he was baptized on the 18th of July 1824 Henry was the 12th child of James GRIGGS and Sarah WARD.
Henry married Rosetta ? BARTLETT
I cannot find the record for their marriage not sure if Rosetta's last name is BARTLETT.
Henry and Rosetta? are on the 1851 England census:
Henry head age 27 born Cambridgeshire
Rosetta wife age 26 born London
Henry and Rosetta do not turn up on the 1881 census I have found Henry GRIGGS and Rosetta BARTLETT on the ship Alipore into Port Phillip January 1853 with child Mary 1 year old.
If this is the same family then Rosetta's last name is BARTLETT.
I would appreciate any help.

William GRAHAM was born in Melbourne Australia in 1842 his parents were George GRAHAM and Catherine WATKINS. I cannot find out any information on William I have information on the rest of the family but William seems to have dissapeared is any-one researching William at all?

I found a George GRAHAM

I found a George GRAHAM on the ship Catherine Jamieson. The ship departed Leith Edinburgh Scotland on the 28th of June 1838, and arrived in Port Adelaide on the 1st of December in 1838.
I have not found any other George GRAHAM coming into Australia in other states of Australia.
There was also a James GRAHAM with wife Margaret nee BRYDON and their children John and Janet on the same ship.

George would have had enough time to get to Melbourne to Marry in 1839.

My question is how can I tell if this is my Ancester?
Can any-body please help me, I don't know where to go from here.
