Thanks Rupert.

Don't know who John and Mary would be.

This family is so difficult because some were baptised at any age between 0 and 9 and age not give in baptism record.

Also many of the LEAR are because it's their father's mother's maiden name. :D

Thanks Rupert.

May be difficult to prove but John, Joseph and Mary in post #2 may be children of a William & Mary.

Not much help finding Joseph but some occupations could be ignored if any are found with occupations.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Sat 7 May 1859 p.5
RAILWAYS.-The following gentlemen have been appointed to the offices mentioned in connexion with their respective names : Joseph Lewton, Esq., to be inspector of permanent way ;
