Notes
a. Note:   William and his wife Catherine Hayes came out to Port Phillip on the Enmore. They left from Cobh in Co Cork Ireland on 22 June 1841 and arrived 4th October 1841. They were listed as William and Mary Fannin, farm servants. William was 28 and could read but not write and Catherine was24 and could neither read or write. They were both Roman Catholic and their fares or bounties were 19 pounds each and they came as assisted passengers. They were imported by a James Cain,as were all the passengers on that page.
 Bill spent the first 6 mths or so working at Werribee and this could have been to repay fare. He worked on crops and Catherine on housework. It is believed that they moved to land at Bulla and may have settled there before actually purchasing the property in 1844.
 When gold was discovered at Bendigo in 1851 Big Bill set up a business taking goods across to the goldfields, at 100 pounds a ton. It is thought they would have used bullock teams as the tracks were extremely rough. A round triptook up to three months. The first day would have takne them to Monegetta. Big Bill did 4-5 trips in a year and Catherine kept the farm going. Big Bill purchased land at Emu Flat (the other side of the Sunbury Rd from the Bulla land) and Moneegetta and Kilmore. He also owned (we can't find any record of ownership, may have been squatters rights) land in Spring St Melbourne where the present day Windsor Hotel is.
 About 10 years after Bill and Catherine came out from Ireland about 17 members of their extended family came out from Tipperary. Apparently Bill was not very welcoming and let them stay in the cattle sheds at Bulla. He did however let them stay for three months at his Spring St land before a group of them went north some to Qld and some stayed in northern NSW.
 On the 1856 Electoral Roll West Bourke Bulla Division he was listed as William Fannin, freeholder of a 100 acre farm in Bulla.
