2nd Engineer

Hi My 3x Great Grandfather Arthur Nicholls was a 2nd Engineer by the time he arrived in Australia in around 1886. I cant find when he actually arrived here but I am wondering on how to find out if he would have done an apprenticeship in the UK. He was born in London, Middlesex 1861.On his Death certificate his father was listed as a Boiler Maker and the only census I can find for this family is in 1861 where they are living in the East India Docks. There is rumour that they may have travelled to India, but I don't have any siblings just the parents listed as Joseph Nicholls from Liverpool and Elizabeth Tonkin from Bilston,Staffordshire..Any help or direction as to where to start getting some info on my Arthur would be fabulous as it is a bit of a brick wall..Thanks in advance Sonya
