Could Ralph jnr be Ralph Higginbotham BROADBENT? (GIven that eldest son Joseph had a surname-y middle name too!)

Death for him in Surry Hills, NSW, Australia in 1883, aged 59 (reg 157), so fits agewise.
EDIT: Just found his death notice, below. I think this is a very good match!:

The Sydney Morning Herald, Monday 29 January 1883
Deaths.
BROADBENT.— January 27, at his residence, Waterloo-street, Surry Hills, Mr. R. H. Broadbent, aged 59 years, late of Saddleworth, Yorkshire, England.


He married Jane WEARNE at Sydney Methodist Church in 1853. She died 30 Aug 1892 at her residence, 52 Telopea St, Redfern, aged 60, d/o Joseph & Susannah (reg 11570). Both are buried at the Rookwood Independent Cemetery (Methodist section), along with chn Louisa (as Louise), Isabella and Wm. See www.rookwoodindependent.com.au/

Chn:
Joseph Robert Y 1854, m. Evelyn Mary ION 1885, d. 18/5/1926 Neutral Bay
Emily Mary 1855, m. John BLAIR 1889, d. 1941 Randwick
Selina Jane S 1856, m. Jno Spenewick SPENCER, d. 8/9/1935 Bondi
Lewis F 1858, d. 1858
Louisa Annie 1859, d. 1925 [unmarried]
Isabella Emma 1861, m. Hy Thos SUTTON 1884, d. 11/10/1925 Killara
Wm Wilkins 1863, m. Florence Mary CUSACK 1886, d. 7/6/1946 Mosman
Chas Franklin 1865, m. Ellie [Ellen] VAUGHAN 1889, d. 13/12/1933 Sydney
Alfred Hy P 1869, m. Harriett AUSTEN 1894, d. 1934
Thos W 1871, d. 1875
Minnie W 1873, m. Wm Jas NEWELL 1900, d. 1943 Drummoyne [as Minnie Ada]

Possible arrival of Ralph in Port Philip in 1849 aboard 'The Lord Hungerford' from London.

There is info online that suggests Ralph's parents were John & Martha (nee HIGGINBOTHAM) so if you are skeptical of this, you would need to get his NSW marriage certificate to be certain it is 'your' Ralph (even then it may not provide father's name). Death cert does not seem to offer that info.

Marr reg is V1853209 85

NSW allows transcription agents, can be cheaper way to go if you only need particular fields. Be careful as some offer more than others in term of pieces of info.

If this is the right couple, there were lots of other siblings, all christened in Friarmere (a parish of Saddleworth and also the place Ralph snr appears to have been christened!); this list includes the eldest 2 you have mentioned. Notice some matching given names to Ralph jnr's chn (Franklin, Selima/Selina and Lewis):

Joseph Schofield 1821
Sophia 1824
Franklin 1826
Sidney 1828
Mary 1830
Selima 1833
Fredk 1839
Eliza 1840
Caroline 1845
Lewis 1835
Elizabeth Martha 1836
Catharine 1842

This matches names on the Census that Eringobragh1916 found (if Selima was Selina).

Also Jean's grandfather's name was Franklin! So I think this must be the right mob :-D Let me know if you'd like more on the chn of Ralph jnr's chn.
