On landing, Bosworth was engaged as a shepherd to Mr Roadknight of Geelong for one year. He appears to have stayed around the Geelong area. In 1854, he was acquitted of the murder of his de facto wife, Mary Murphy, but found guilty of manslaughter and sentenced to 10 years on the roads.
Bosworth married Ann Hogan in 1859. Their children were Edmund (1860), Joseph (1862), Jane (1865), Joseph (1867) and John (1876).
