If you right click the image and then open in a new tab you can get a larger image and can use zoom function. In this map from 1855 W. Fannan has a block of land in Quartz St Bulla.
Has to be after 1854. W Farman has 346 acres on Emu or Bolinda Creek purchased on 7 June 1855. W.Farman also has the 119 acres “Sunnyside” next to M. Loeman. In town it looks like lot 47 is owned by E.Fanning. ?? Could be Ellen Fanning wife of John Henry Fanning son of William Patrick Fanning.
On Quartz St lot 7 belongs to Fannan in 1863.
More variations on the name Fanning!!
Thanks to my cousin Teresa for sending these parish maps to me.
This is the 1856 Parish Plan for Bulla then called Bulla Bulla in Victoria Australia showing the land holdings of William Patrick Fanning (listed as W. Fannan).
This Parish Plan was kindly sent to me by my first cousin Teresa Fairbairn nee Fanning.
Lot 19b was where Big Bill had “Sunnyside” built and where he and his family lived and where his descendants still live. The other 346 acres was the land that his son John Henry inherited. It was called “Emu Flat” and the Fannings living there were called the “Flat Fannings” and those at “Sunnyside” were the “Hill Fannings”. It is interesting that even in 1856 William Patrick Fanning is listed as W.Fannan.
