Note:

Joseph claims to be the first white child born in Wingham, but Alexander McGilvray disputes this. Joseph's birth date has been confirmed using the NSW BDM Index. Therefore it is clear that Joseph was born before Alexander but whether Joseph was in fact the first white child born in Wingham, or further down the Manning, cannot be confirmed from these records. Alexander McGilvray can be found here:
