George Hartley, Castlemaine 1860

Henry Hartley married Emma Howarth 9 Feb 1857 in Manchester, England
in 1858 their son William Hartley was born "at sea"
in 1860 their son George Hartley was born "near Castlemaine, Australia"
in 1864 their son Henry Hartley was born back in the Manchester area where they stayed for the rest of their lives.
(all birth years calculated from 1871 census)

I would like to know about their trip to Australia and the birth details for George Hartley please

Was there a gold rush or some other reason to entice Henry to go to Victoria for about four years and then come home? In England he was a labourer/brickmaker/labourer in corn mill.

Any details of the family in Australia would be appreciated
