Looking at Military records the Henry Edwards you have found in 1841 was born in Maidstone, Kent. He is soldier number 1072 of the 58th Foot. He is down as being in Glasgow/Edinburgh in 1841 and still in the Army in 1851.

The right death but nothing that helps much.

The Age (Melbourne, Vic.) - Wed 4 Jan 1893 p.1
Deaths.
EDWARDS.-On the 3rd January, at 656 Bridge-rd., Richmond, Henry Edwards, late of Port Melbourne, aged 73 years.
EDWARDS.-On the 3rd January, Henry, beloved husband of Marion Edwards, and father of Mrs. Sprott, Hawthorn, and Mrs. Anderson, Armadale.

Can't find an obituary.

I've found a tree that is no help.

No deaths for Marion Murray's parents.

Has Henry Edwards born England or Scotland.

A birth in Victoria with a middle name not seen before.

EDWARDS Charles Murry Barstow - Hry - Marion (Murry) Reg. year1859 Reg. no246

Thanks Val.

Very interesting.

Census does have India B S - B S = British Subject

I had a look in FIBIS but was searching for Edwards.
