Stokoe family in Sunderland and sydney (bankstown)

I'm researching the family of John Stokoe who worked as a mast maker/boilermaker/carpenter on the Pallion Shipyards in Sunderland until 1885 when he and his family left for Australia.

John was born in the Northeast of England in 1844/5 and married Elizabeth Sarah Mawston in 1868 and had 2 sons William Henry 1868 and John Kendal 1872, then he married Jane Elliott in 1876 following Elizabeths death and had several more children.
William Henry returned to England in 1890's and married Laura Harland in Middlesbrough. I have found cousins in Australia ad would like to go further back if i can.
