Have you got him on a census in 1841/1851? 

There won't be a birth certificate as such that far back  :(

There are no detail on his marriage or death certificates, only age 28 in May 1861, and batchelor and England. His daughter filled out his death details, with father Benjamin and place of birth Shropshire. That is why this is so hard.
Thanks everyone for trying. He was in Australia for the 1861 Census.

Good luck with this.
I did notice your query on the Australian Board also.
