I can't find them in 1861 on FS.

I can't find any births in GRO 1857 - 1861 that fit.

Darling Downs Gazette (Qld.) - Fri 1 Apr 1910 p.5
PERSONAL.
We regret to record the death at her home at Bald Hills of Mrs Thomas Gorring, mother of Mr A. A. Gorring, of this town. The deceased lady had attained the age of 79 years, of which fifty-seven were spent in Queensland, whence she had come with her husband from their native place in Surrey, fifty-seven years ago. ...

Qld. Birth 1869/B09203 Gorring Alfred Erin - Thomas - Emma Elderfield * 29 Nov 1868

Is that A. A. or a brother?
 
The obituary on Post#2 states that she had lived in Queensland for 57 years. If, as the obituary states, she died in 1910 then that implies that she arrived in Queensland in 1853. If she arrived in 1853 did she go back to England in 1857 to get married?
 
Dunno emeltee. Post #1 should be ok but don't know about the obituary.

??
Assisted to Vic.
ELDERFIELD EMMA 14 'NELEUS' 1854-10 Vol 11 page 98

315, Elderfield Emma, Dom Servant, Oxford, CofE, R&W, 14

Assignment: Gone with brother Thomas to Gardiner's Creek

Gardiners Creek is significant as it forms part of the City of Boroondara's southern boundary. It's also where John Gardiner became the first white settler ..

The SE suburbs of Melbourne.

I can't find an arrival for Thomas.

Emma not in the Outward Passenger list ?

I think we can ignore the one in Vic.

The obituary looks to be in error.

A marriage in England June Q 1857 and in Qld. by 22 Feb 1858.
 
Thanks emeltee.

Thanks Ellie.

I notice an error on the marriage with both fathers as John Gorring.
