Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes Bayly's data from a document, "More Oz Birth Data," compiled by Dennis Sutton, stating source as "Date and time from Arthur Bowman (C rating). Most sources give Bateman's Bay, NSW. Australian Film and Television Companion gives Trundle, NSW."

Scholfield notes that Who's Who in Australia also gives Trundle.
