A biography “The Life of Andrew Silas Waters c1806 to 1870” was written by R.G.(Bob)Byfield in 1989.  National Library of Australia ISBN 0 646084 11 9

Andrew Waters is certainly a pseudonym adopted to protect the family in England.  Byfield’s opinion is that he was John Watkins christened on 3 January 1814, son of George Nowell and Mary Watkins.  G N Watkins was a Minister of Religion.
A pdf copy of this document is available along with a family tree extending to 4th or 5th generation.
