Were you aware of the nickname referred to below? Or was there another William before your 1858 one?
No, he wasn't married till 1847. Do you know why he was called that? I mean it is trivial but interesting just the same.

The Maitland Mercury and Hunter River General Advertiser, Wednesday 24 March 1847
One Bay MARE, switch tail, black points, branded EO on the off neck, IT near
shoulder, T5 under the saddle.
A Bay Yearling FILLY, branded EO off neck, IT near shoulder.
The above were running on Mr. Niele's run, Balindun, near Tenterfield, New England, and supposed
to have been stolen by William Holley, better known by the name of "the Boy Billy."
The above reward will be paid to any person giving such information as may lend to the discovery of the Horses
and detection of the thief.
