I have found another picture held by the Ballarat Historical society, giving the names of the gentlemen in the picture. It says that the man with the folded arms is actually Lord Newry. Unfortunately Morgan Lee does not get a mention on the back of the photograph...

Morgan Lee is my great-great grandfather, his son Thomas Dunstan is my great-grandfather and his son Edward James is my grand father. Morgan Lee has quite a few descendants living by now.
