The late Mr. Benton was born in the Isle of Wight, near the late Queen's Castle, on 12th March, 1809, and came to Australia in the year 1851. ?

If John arrived in 1851 then Caroline was still in England in 1852. Either way arrival/arrivals not yet found. Marriage not found.

Looking for John in 1841.

I can't find a baptism.

If parents are correct I can't find their marriage.
