TULLAMARINE ISLAND NEAR BULLA, VIC., AUST.

Journal by itellya

Section 10 of the parish of Tullamarine has been mentioned in my journal about J.P.Fawkner's land co-operatives in Melbourne's north west. It was the western part of the southern half of Tullamarine Island.

Tullamarine Island is generally held to be the land enclosed by Jacksons and Deep Creek, south of the Bulla _Diggers Rest Rd but Ed. Fanning of Sunnyside had a theory that the northern boundary was Emu Creek.Ed's family has been on the Island since the earliest days (see Kathleen Fanning's FANNING FAMILY website)and that would give his theory credibility but I will stick with the generally accepted northern boundary until I find proof in the form of a farm north of Sunnyside being described as being on Tullamarine Island.

When I was checking in my TULLAMARINE PARISH: EARLY LANDOWNERS(not a journal)to see whether William Bedford had the north or south half of lot 34 in Fawkner's break-up of Section 10, I was amazed at how much titles, occupancy and genealogical detail I had collected about the rest of Tullamarine Island.

As the maps showing farms cannot be included here and there is no hope of including all the surnames in this journal's surname list,I will list farm names and all surnames within this journal. The surnames list will only include surnames whose researchers are less likely to know of an association with Tullamarine Island.There is no need for me to list names such as Fanning and Bedford. Information given re section 10 Tullamarine can be found in the journal about Fawkner's Co-operatives mentioned previously and will not be repeated here unless it refers to connection with other farms or families. Farm names or surnames marked * were not on the Island but are connected in various ways.

If diggers researching surnames listed recall mention of Tullamarine Island or any of the farm names,send me a private message specifying the surname or farm name that is of interest, I will be happy to supply any information that is contained in my book.

I must thank Ed Fanning, Bob Blackwell, Henry Bedford, Judy Sloggett, and Alice Pryor (nee Wood)for supplementing my rates and titles research. Judy's genealogical information, centred on the Faithfulls, involved many of the members of Fawkner's Co-operatives or later owners of those blocks.
