Is it possible that he arrived with wife (Mary Ann WILLIAMS?) and 2 children (Thomas, William?) via South Australia in May 1847 (ship=Theresa)?: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/48544529?searchTerm=cocking
After they had a few children in SA (Stephen, James, Joseph? ), they would arrive in Victoria between 1852 and 1854 where they were to have some more children....

Select passenger lists from drop box, then add Theresa and 1847

‘COCKING Thomas, wife (Mary Ann WILLIAMS?), 2 ch (inc My?)’
