John Rule - Cornwall to Bendigo

I'm looking for information on the parents of John Rule who came to Bendigo, Victoria from Camborne in Cornwall.

John Rule was born circa 1837 in Camborne, Cornwall, England (according to his death record).
He came to Victoria circa 1859.

On the 22 of January in 1862 he married Mary Gribben (also Gribbin, Gribbins, or Gribban on different records) the daughter of Edward Gribben and Mary Ann Oates. Mary was also born in Cornwall in 1837 and came to Australia on the Confiance in 1854.

The couple had the following children John Henry b.1864, Georgina b.1866, William Frances b.1869, Rosina b.1870, Richard Stevens b.1874, Richard Charles b.1875.

John Rule died in Golden Gully, Sandhurst (Bendigo)in 1889. No parents are listed on his death record.

Although I got the marriage information for John Rule and Mary Gribben from the IGI I cannot find any record of it at the Victorian BMD site.

Trying to trace a John Rule back to Cornwall Has been extremely frustrating and just led me to suspect every male born in Cornwall in the 1830s was named John Rule.

Does anyone have any idea who my John Rule may be? Or other ways I may be able to find out his parents names?
