William Grieve/Betsy Minto went to Australia 1854

Looking for info on the above who I believe went to Victoria in 1854 on board the Admiral Boxer. William Grieve born 1825 and Betsy (Elizabeth) Minto born 1826 in the Hawick, Roxburghshire area. They had son William born 1849 with them and had a daughter born in 1854 named Helen Minto Grieve.

I think Betsy followed her brother out there. He was a surveyor in Bendingo and I have found him in Trove but not much about where he came from. his name was George Minto born around 1823 in Hawick who goes to Australia between 41 and 51. There may have been another brother Thomas born 1811 who certainly disappears from scotland around the same time but I can't find him on any ship.

Anything anyone could find on any of these would be useful!
