MARSDEN family of Brighton

I am researching the Marsden family of Brighton, Sussex.

Michael Marsden born abt 1819 Dublin, Ireland (coachtrimmer) married Sarah Bartholomew in 1852 East Ashford.

Their children were

Michael (born 1854), married Mary Ann Robinson born abt 1851 Preston Sussex, at Saint Peters Brighton, Sussex on 24/01/1874.

Their children were

Michael (born 1854) was in the Royal Navy as an artificer from 1882 - 1892 and was discharged at Port Royal Jamaica. It is believed he went to the Panama Canal to work but because of the illnesses there moved on. I have hit a blank wall from 1892 until November, 1899 when he worked in Brisbane, Australia for 3 months.

Any help on the above people would be very much appreciated.
