Not sure if this fits in or not, see what you think. Seems to be your William J Moffitt and uses both birth and step father's surnames.

Australian Town and Country Journal (Sydney, NSW : 1870 - 1919)

Sat 12 May 1877

The next case was Sarah Cecilia Ashley against Wm. Fry, alias Moffitt, Thomas Jones, and David Robinson. It appeared the complainant, a girl of about 13 years of age, was sent by her mother to see an aged and very ailing man named Hayes ; on her way she saw defendants about a mile from Hayes's place, and on four different occasions they pursued and hunted her, calling her nicknames, and eventually Fry or Moffitt caught her and threw her down, causing her much alarm. This case was conducted by Senior-constable Mullarky. Moffitt was fined £1 11s 10d, including costs, or the alternative of fourteen days in the lock-up. The fine was paid.

NSW Death FRY CHRISTOPHER C 12626/1905 69 YRS GOSFORD GOSFORD

That's the one married to the ruled out Harriet and not the one who married in 1862.

No death in NSW index for the one who married in 1862.
