Another death notice,  inserted  9 days after his death in the newspaper The Australasian (Melbourne), tells of his arrival:

LEWIS.ľOn the 2nd inst., at 176 Russell-street, near Lonsdale-street, Melbourne, of phthisis, William Lewis, aged 29 years, late of Cardiff, passenger by the s.s John Elder in October last. Gone to rest.
Cardiff papers please copy.
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/138076534

I see him on the New South Wales, Australia, Unassisted Immigrant Passenger Lists, Steam Ship John Elder from London to Sydney, arr 14 October 1881.  He travelled steerage. No other information on that list.

There is a transcript of a headstone; this record hasn't copied the verse. (See the attachment, which I hope works!)
Name:   William Lewis
Death Date:   2 Mar 1882
Burial Place:   Victoria, Australia
Cemetery:   Melbourne, Section:   H No 5, Religion:   Methodist
Transcription:   In Affectionate Memory of William LEWIS of Cardiff Wales died at Melbourne 2 Mar 1882 age 29 yrs verse.

There is a public tree on Ancestry (owned by a Cardiff person) with photos of William, Hester and Catherine. There is also a photo of his grave-site, as well as the attached headstone.  Can PM if you want.  Sadly it seems Catherine, the daughter also died in 1882, of scarlet fever.

Just remarking on co-incidence -

I see from William LEWIS' probate record his Cardiff address is given as 44 James St, Cardiff and his occupation as 'grocer'.  My husband's great-grandfather William BALLARD was also a grocer in Cardiff living at 38 Maria St,  in 1881 - a little over half a mile from the address given for William LEWIS.

I've no idea where the shop was.

William Ballard died in 1888 - perhaps he's also buried at Whitchurch.
