Another marriage 1863/B0781 Franz Jane Caroline - Best John

No idea when John arrived or if he is a brother.

There are several but there is this death:

1905/B5463 Best John - Thomas Best - Hannah McCourt

I presume he arrived after Jane. Only Mary Anne listed as being in the colony.

I can't see a death for Jane Caroline.

Baptisms

1854 BBP207 Ambrose Andrew Franz - Frederick Theodore - Caroline Charlotte Dorothea -

1854 BBP2354 Edward Benjamin Franz - Theodore - Maria Weiss

1854 BBP2324 Jane Franz - Theodor - Maria -

With this death it looks as though the marriage to Jane was the 2nd for Theodore/Frederick Theodore.

1883/C00516 Franz Sarah Fredericke Ethel - Frederick Theodore Franz - Marianne Best

That's not Caroline Charlotte Dorothea.

Maiden name not FRANZ.
