William Craig in Australia around 1860

Does anyone have any information on an ancestor of mine, William Craig. Not sure if his family originated from Ireland or Scotland but I believe that his family had something to do with the JJ Craig (barque) in New Zealand and if so it means they came from Scotland. He was definitely in Australia around 1860 because his daughter Annie Craig was born in 1862 and married a William George Miller in Surry Hills Sydney in 1884 at St. Michaels Church. I don't know William Craig's wife's name either as this was not on the marriage certificate I have for Annie. The only birth records I have been able to find so far for Annie in Sydney shows her father's name as Andrew Craig but he wrote and signed his name on the marriage certificate as William. So his real name may have been Andrew William Craig. Can anyone help please! Darryl
