    Notes 
    • Alia Squire/ Bailey William was also known in his children's birth registrations (except Richard) as "Henry". This may have been his nickname to distinguish him from his father. William named his property "Clyde Farm", and the original homestead is still there, a stone built two-story cottage, now falling to pieces. Here, as with many of the Valley's old cottages, the main trouble was the lack of an adequate lime-mixture to bind the sandstone blocks. From the layout of the rooms it shows there was a front parlour with an open fireplace. Off this was the parent's bedroom, and from this a ladder ascended to the 'loft' above, where, with a rough division between the girls and boys, the family slept. As this upstairs area spread over most of the space below it was reasonably roomy even though dark by today's standards. Having a shingled roof, would have kept the area reasonably cool. A kitchen with a high-mantled fireplace led from the parlour, and off the kitchen at one end was a small room, probably used as a cool room or storeroom, where milk and other perishables could be kept for a short time. There was originally no glass in any of the windows, being at that time too expensive, instead wooden window shutters were used. As families worked from dawn to dusk, and retired to their beds quite early, very little light was needed. Oil lamps, later followed by kerosene lamps were used when needed.

      THE 1842 WATERSPOUT According to the Sydney Morning Herald it was reported that a waterspout struck the neighbourhood of the Upper MacDonald. The violence of this stupendous aqueduct was principally on the farm of Mr Bailey, over which it descended and literally propelled four acres of ripe wheat a distance of upwards two hundred yards... Parties were to be seen running in every direction endeavouring to drive their cattle beyond the reach of the flood coming up The Branch. The waters gradually disappeared after the first grand burst, which is described by an eye witness as rolling onwards like a huge mountain.

      Like his brother John, William did not leave anything in his will to his first family. Everything went to Jane who in turn divided up the property amongst their children. Copies of both wills are held by Trevor Phee.
