Researching William Liddell born 21 Dec 1834 Allendale Northumberland UK - post 1851 census ?

Gidday,

Looking for any further details re William Liddell b Allendale Northumberland UK to Joshua Liddell and Mary Coulson, as above. Three of his four other brother, John b1831, Joshua b1840, and Joseph b1844, travelled to the Victorian (Australia) goldfields between 1859 and 1866, in Smythesdale, Springdallah, and Scarsdale townships, very close to Ballarat.

Youngest brother Thomas 1847-1891 remained in Northumberland /Durham and had 4 children.

Records end abruptly for William at the 1851 UK census as follows

1834 21 Dec 1834 Allendale, Northumberland, England
Baptism
1835 11 Jan 1835 Cumberland, England
Age: 1 month
Residence
1841 Age: 7Shotley, Northumberland, England
Age: 7
Residence
1851 Age: 17Allendale and West Allen High, Northumberland, England
Age: 16; Relation to Head of House: Son - Scholar

Have traced most logical leads, including BDM, newspaper articles, and also the whereabouts of deaths of his 3 brothers in Victoria, being John in Springdallah, Joshua in Stawell, and Joseph in Bairnsdale, as many immigrants lived close to family and friends from the old country.

Any leads re William Liddell ( often spelt Liddle ) in UK or Australia after 1951, would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks
Mixo
West Gippsland Victoria
