Thanks Emeltee.

That looks to fit but I have no other info to say that was his occupation. Nothing that helps on shipping records I've found so far.

On May 1st, 1849, the founder of the house (Cribb & Foote) the late Mr Benjamin Cribb, landed from the ship 'Chasley' upon the soil of the land of his future labours, and in which he was to become so important a citizen. Mr Benjamin Cribb commenced and carried on business successfully in Ipswich for some years, and then took into partnership Mr J. C. Foote and Mr Robert Cribb, junior, under the firm name of Cribb & Foote.

A merchant by trade, Cribb emigrated to Queensland from England in 1849, carrying goods to sell in Brisbane. He immediately purchased premises at the corner of Albert and Queen Streets in Brisbane, after which time he strategically relocated to Ipswich, where he was to establish the ‘London Stores’. His first newspaper adverts included ‘linen drapery’ and ‘slops clothing’ (inexpensive, ready-to-wear clothing), amongst general produce such as tea and liquor. After this first shipment, the London Stores steadily expanded the imported range of garments, footwear, and drapery.

there's a portrait of him too.
