I gather you are seeking the first emigrants to Australia within certain family names.
The first MAPLEBACKs arrived as a family on the barque, Pestongee Bomanji, out of Portsmouth, arriving Melbourne in 1851.
JOHN MAPLEBACK, his wife Jane, and six of their seven kids settled in Australia.
You have already made reference to the MULLER family which is twice connected by marriage to the Maplebacks. In this regard you have also referenced Val Sheehan's (a Muller) book, "They all Came to Rushworth;" Rushworth was the town in which the Maplebacks and the Mullers became intertwined.
The complete Mapleback line is detailed on Rootsweb at http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi Type in "Mapleback" in the first box.
I also have the entire MAPLEBACK file in a 'Reunion' file see http://www.leisterpro.com/ inclusive from 1699 to the present.
