Later Sidney emigrated to Australia, where he became a sheep farmer with 3,000 acres of land. It is possible that Sidney was going to marry his cousin Eliza Elizabeth Smellie. She certainly emigrated to Australia, perhaps with marriage in mind. However she changed her mind and settled in Brisbane. Sidney never married, and died during the 1940's.
