You need to research your own family, not those who happen to have the same surname.  All of William and Rebecca's children were born after civil registration began so a birth certificate for any one of them will give an occupation for the father, an age for both parents, and their place of birth.  You can then see if those details match up with immigration records.

Housemaid
Born Cambridge
Parents John and Susan
Father dead
Brother in the colony. John....??...Mother... (this needs some deciphering input!)

I had to cheat and look them up because I couldn't read it either.

Rebecca BENDALL. September 1857.
Aged 23
Per Washington Irving
General Servant.
Fulbourne Cambridge.
Parents Charles and Susan
Mother at Fulbourne, Father dead
Sister in the colony. Eliza BENDALL, per Vocalist.
Can read.

Eliza BENDALL. August 1857
Aged 18
Per Vocalist
Kitchenmaid
Fulborn Cambridge
Parents John and Susan
Father dead, mother at Fulborn
Brothers in the colony, John, Mathew and William Bendall, Sydney

John's just says 'Brother in Sydney' with no name.  Matthew arrived in 1859 on the Rose of Sharon, brothers William and John in the colony.  William probably arrived in 1854 on the Ellenborough.  He was from Cambridge but most of the columns for the passengers have been left blank.

Yes, agree, there's definitely more than one BOWMAN family in the central west of NSW in the 1850s !

I will look up my own family tree charts to see if I can help with any 'stray' bdms.
