Hiram Horrocks and his family - Lancashire and Victoria

Does anyone have any information about Hiram Horrocks and his extended family? Hiram was born in Farnsworth Lancashire in 1827. He was one of 6 children of John Horrocks and Elizabeth Knowles -
Jemima 1815, married John William Walker
Emanuel 1817,
Solomon 1821,
Daniel 1824,
Hiram 1827,
Elizabeth 1831.

After marrying Mary Entwistle in Ashton under Lyne they migrated to Melbourne Victoria in 1853. Of their 3 children only one child Elizabeth survived. She married Charles Whitely. Their children were Cuthbert Whitely and Francis Whitely (later Benton).

Several years after the death of his first wife Hiram married Sarah Jackson (1862). Hiram spent most of his long life in the Victorian mining town of Eldorado. He died in 1909.

I am looking for help in filling out this family tree, particularly the spouses of Hiram's siblings. I would like to know whether any of them came to Australia.
