Joseph GRINDELL born around 1826 (Documents Articles)

We are looking for information about Joseph GRINDELL born around 1826. We believe that he was from Gloucestershire or the Forest of Dean. The first records that we have of him are in Australia. Unfortunately I have not been able to locate him or his wife on a ship manifest or other Australian documents.

Joseph married Maria HARVEY July 19 1853 in St John, Parramatta, NSW Australia. He owned a home and some land there then immigrated to California, USA in 1867 with his wife and several children. We know Joseph was VERY proudly Welsh. He listed England as his birthplace on US census records. He was also consistent with his birth year being 1826 on the census documents.

The only real lead that we have is an arrest record for a Joseph Grindell age 13 imprisoned for 1 month on l Aug 3 1839 in Gloucester, England (crime not listed). "Register of all persons charged with indictable offenses at the assizes and sessions held within the county during the year 1939"

We would appreciate any help.
