I've had another look for the family in 1881 census and can't find them.

Daughter Mary Alice died in NSW in 1954.

I can't find a birth notice in TROVE so I don't know what month that 1881 birth was registered.

The family is not listed on the Unassisted Index to Victoria. Assisted passage to Victoria ended in 1871. They are not in this index either as THORNLEY or THORNLY:
