After a long search this afternoon, William remains elusive for the time being!
Time to begin more shoemaker research in Sydney.
Thanks everyone for your help.
Happy New Year

Joseph & Bridget's son William was baptized at St Joseph's RC Church, 28 March 1837 born 28 Jan 1837. Full name was William Hugo O'Brien.

Thankyou so much for your digging and delving and post.  There is some good information there. 
The middle name of Hugo has never appeared in any records and is not mentioned in his death inquest and cert (he died in a sugar factory accident when the cart tipped over), so I wonder, perhaps a friend.....
Again thanks to all who have contributed to my research.
