I think posting information about the other Terence LYNCH is creating a red herring.  He was born Co Clare.

Thank you all very much for your help. 

It is a really difficult one but I appreciate your help. I am trying to find any lead I can. 

My gut feeling tells me the Terence Francis Lynch in Ballarat is not one and the same as mine.  (I believe the TFL in Ballarat had a son with the same name also). 

My TFL could not read nor write and seemed to be deserting his wife regularly. 

Frederick was a son of theirs (apologies for leaving him off my list Jamjar - I had to rush out after I posted)

It's as though they (Terence and Mary) just disappeared from Emerald Hill so I am trying to make sure I seek out as much information from the possibilities I have found. 

I have quite a lot on Terence and Mary's children.  One child Edwin, who was in the Army in Victoria (his wife was recorded as Next of Kin) moved to Western Australia, had the incorrect parents details on his Marriage Certificate (even his name was recorded as Ernest Edward & Ernest Edwin Lynch on the birth records) and on his Death Certificate, his parents were recorded as 'Unknown'.  He was very young when Terence was deserting his wife.

I will look at all the information you have posted and see if I can find anything from that.
Again, thanks very much! 
Karen :-)

Hi fellow Rootchatters!

Can you help?  I am trying to find out if the Terrence Lynch on this deceased search is my Great Great Grandfather.  The age compares with my Terrence Lynch.  If you can point me in the direction I need to look at or help me with any further information, I would appreciate it greatly! 
Thanks so much.   :)

https://web.ballaratcemeteries.com.au/Deceasedsearch/DeceasedDetails.aspx?PersonId=146745&LocationId=22189

Both people listed in your link show as inmates. Catherine Riddle alias Ruddle, aged 50 in 1910, is listed in the register of inmates of the Ballarat Benevolent Asylum resource here:
http://www.ballaratgenealogy.org.au/research/ballarat-benevolent-asylum

I can't see a Terence Lynch but maybe contact the society?

M

Ballarat Health Services now hold the records from the Benevolent Asylum. They can be contacted for a 'Genealogy Search Application Form' which asks amongst other things for proof of ID, your relationship to the patient and reason for the request. There is a base fee of around $28, waived for Centrelink card holders, and no time limit on the records.

Thank you Mathewj64.  That is great information to know!
 
Cando, thank you too!  I think you have found him!
He arrived in Victoria in 1873 on ship Ben Nevis!  Was this information a Death Notice by chance?  Wow!
Thanks so much!

Father's name - Lynch James   
Mother's maiden name -Mary (Mcmanamny)   
Reg. year 1922   
Reg. no 7722
   
Father's name - Lynch Terence   
Mother's maiden name - Ellen (Mcnamara)   
Reg. year 1922   
Reg. no 7746

https://online.justice.vic.gov.au/bdm/indexsearch.doj

The first Terence was 83 [fits your man's year of birth] and the second was 81. There are no other deaths in Vic showing the parents James & Mary McM*y.

This may well be the death of Ellen LYNCH, wife and mother of 'the other' Terence LYNCH: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/152179315

Obit of the second Terence who died 1922, aged 81: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/176522579
