Children:
Sarah Elizabeth 1857 Buckland (as TURNER, father Eli)
Mary Ann 1858 Buckland (as HOLDSWORTH, father JWH)
Edwin 1860 Melbourne (as HOLDSWORTH, father JWH)
Unnamed male 1860 Melbourne (as above, diff reg to Edwin)
John Wm 1862 Buckland (as HOLDSWORTH, father JWH)
David 1865 Buckland (as TURNER, father Eli), d. 1865

Note there was also a Samuel TURNER and Mary HEALEY in Melbourne at the time (this Mary died in 1862 aged 44, b. Leic).

The only 1870 death I can see is for Joseph? Is that the same one? How do you know Eli is the same man as John Wm HOLDSWORTH?

Did Mary Ann marry as TURNER in 1875 to Geo WILLIAMS (reg 3711)? And John as TURNER to Frances Margaret OSMOND in 1884 (reg 6524)? And Sarah as Elizabeth TURNER to Jas O'SHEA in 1874 (reg 2925)?

Mary Ann WILLIAMS died in Bright in 1938 aged 82 Sarah, but parents shown as John & Chris TURNER (reg 13933). Sarah Elizabeth died as SHORT in 1937 aged 80 in Northcote, father shown as Eli TURNER, mother Mary HEALY (reg 3047).

The Edwin Holdsworth who married Margaret Ellen WALLACE in Vic and died in Western Australia in 1919 aged 62 is not the right man.
