Henry Foreman where did you come from?

Henry Foreman -  (Foreman-796) was my GG grandfather.  He is my big brickwall. 

His life in South Australia is quite well documented form the time of his first marriage.  He was married twice & fathered 16 children.   His lived, married & died in Clare South Australia, where he was an orchardist & gardener.  

There is some reference to a Sheperd boy called Henry Foreman in that area prior to the marriage.  I just cannot find where he came from - how he came to be in South Australia.  

There was a Secretary to the Shipping Company signing documents as Henry Foreman early in the States History - the age would be wrong, but as a parent of my Henry, it is a possibity.  I don't seem to be able to find any clues about him, or personal info on him. 

Any clues of where to look next would be greatly appreciated.
