Francis Bennett death 1877 Sebastopol, Victoria

Francis Bennett was one of my 2x great grandfathers. He was born about 1830 in Lower Killeavy, Armagh and died 1877 in Sebastopol, Victoria.

About 1840 he moved with his parents, Denis and Hannah, and his brothers to Liverpool, England. He married Ann Pattinson in Victoria, Australia in 1868. How he got to Victoria is a mystery to me. I have a hunch that he worked on ships, as records show a Francis Bennett of similar age working out of Liverpool. Maybe he jumped ship in Australia.
