Shears of Surrey - request for information and primary sources

Hi all,

I am researching my family of Shears who immigrated to Australia in 1857, the parent being William Shears and Jane Shears (nee Walsh). I believe they were married between the years of 1846 and 1848. Can anyone provide details, or point me me into the right source, of their marriage date and certificate or registry entry. My research has indicated that William Shears was born 1823 in Surrey, and Jane Walsh was born 1828 in Surrey, however, these dates may be rubbery.

Also, I am seeking information, and original entries (if possible), for the birth records of their children, namely, Walter Shears, who was born between the years of 1847 and 1848, and Amelia Shears who was born between 1854 and 1855.

I understand that I have not provided detailed information, but any help would be appreciated.
