Do you have a year or town of birth, or any other details? Where did the ship sail from?Have you seen a copy of the passenger manifest? Did he have a family, or was he alone when he got to the USA? I think you may be assuming that because he set off from England he was English, which isn't always the case. Have you found a USA Census record for him at all? That might give you more clues where to start. Then I'd try the 1871 Census for England.  The best of luck!

We have no knowledge of his life in the UK apart from the fact he sailed from Plymouth in the Benan on Feb 1876 and claimed he was 23 years old. We have a ships list from his arrival in Adelaide in May 1876 but it gives no UK information.
 On his marriage certificate he stated his fathers name was Anthony.
