Henry Barker & Lydia Amelia Ford

I'm looking for info on Henry Barker b1829 England, I believe he was a convict, and Lydia Amelia Ford b1829 England d1909 Ballarat, Victoria, Australia who may have also been a convict. She married Henry in Tasmania when she was 15ys old 1844 (aprox). They had a son Henry Augustus Barker b1848 London, England, d1906 Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. I believe Henry & Lydia went back to England where Henry Augustus was born. I was also told that Henry Snr. married a woman named Anne in Tasmania. There is a Barker family in Bendigo, Victoria, Australia who think that their grandfather is Henry Augustus Barker, my great grandfather. Only his known wife and children are mentioned on his death certificate but it is possible that he had more children in Ballarat because we were told that he deserted his wife Lucy Halfpenny and lived with a woman in a tent and had 5 more children. Lucy was known to visit them.
