BRIANT Thomas, George, James, sons of Thomas of Whitchurch Oxfordshire

Classification: Query
Surnames: BRIANT WALLIKER
Emigrated to Australia ?
I believe James Briant and his wife Sophia Walliker (born 1846), Thomas Briant (born 1852), and George Briant (born 1855) may have emigrated to Austraia. I lose track of them in 1869, 1861, and 1871, respectively. The Briants were all born in the Shoreditch / Cripplegate area to the North of Liverpool Street Station east London. Their father was Thomas Briant, born in Whitchurch Oxfordshire who around 1851 was a coachman just at the time the railways were taking over. He later got positions as a gardener in the big country houses in Essex.
I believe they went to Australia because my great grandfather Leonard Fraank Briant made a passage to Australia in 1912 trying to find them.

Any assistance with these Briants would be greatly appreciated.
