This orphan has been claimed by: Ken Ryan

Is this the same Samuel Ryan married in Melbourne 1858 whose certificate says he was born in Hobart ? (This orphan Samuel was taken to Hobart with his mother on the Platina in 1837 when he was 6). We think they must be the same person but can anyone verify this please. ? Samuel married in Melbourne is my ancestor.
