Thanks Geoff.

Just found that very long obit.
...
From the meagre particulars which we
can gather we learn that Mr. Cribb was a
native of Poole, in Dorsetshire, England.
His father was a merchant captain, and re-
cived injuries at sea which ultimately
caused his death. ...

On May 1st, 1849, the founder of the house (Cribb & Foote) the late Mr Benjamin Cribb, landed from the ship 'Chasley' ...

Looks like shipping record might be one place to get his age.
