Alice Emptage 1856-1908

I am looking for information on Alice Emptage who was born 30 Oct 1856 in Woolwich England and died in Brisbane Australia 9 May 1908 of TB. She was married to Rev William Higlett in Brisbane on 18 April 1883 and had 3 sons.

I am writing the story of Wm Higlett and have quite a bit of information already but could be helped by more.
Her father was James Robert Emptage of Bolwing Green Row Woolwich Kent.

I am also trying to track down James Emptage who had contact with the Higlett family in Sydney ion these dates

For the first 2 of these, his name seemed to be linked with a ship, the Diogenes, so he may have been crew but after that there is no mention, so perhaps he settled in Sydney.

Any ideas and information would be much appreciated.
