    Notes 
    • J K. Cleeve (1803-1883)purchased Bungarribee in 1851, but didn't take up residence until sometime after that. He died in 1883, with the property remaining part of his estate until sold off by his Trustees in the early 1900s. John Kingdon Cleeve, (both father and son), served as trustees of St. Bartholomew's Church of England, Prospect, NSW ,where members of this family are buried.

      J.K.Cleeve married Ann McGuire in 1833 but she was not the mother of Margaret Louisa,whose story is detailed here.Margaret's mother was an unknown aboriginal woman.


      The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) ,Saturday 30 December 1854 records that John K. Cleeve was granted a licence to slaughter cattle in the city and police district of Sydney.

      The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) ,Saturday 4 June 1870 reports John Kingdom Cleeve's appointment to the Public School Boards of the Public School at Prospect,NSW.

      The land on which the Bungarribee house site and farm estate are located was originally occupied by the people of the Warrawarry group of the Darug people. They were based around Eastern Creek and the surrounding forest and grassland and used these for food and shelter, hunting and gathering a wide array of animal and plant foods including fresh water fish, crayfish and shellfish.

      A close examination of the documentation of Governor Phillip's first exploration of Parramatta's western hinterland in April 1788 reveals that the orthodox view that he went only as far as Prospect Hill or a lttle beyond is deeply flawed. His party is much more likely to have traversed Toongabbie, Seven Hills and Blacktown to climb Bungarribee Hill, Doonside and reaching Eastern Creek and Rooty Hill (Flynn, 1995, 9).

      By the time of European settlement in the western regions after 1790, the original Aboriginal groups had been severely affected by an outbreak of smallpox that had first devastated the groups closest to the European settlement but rapidly spread through the entire Sydney district. Many of the surviving groups in the west had likely begun to come together to form amalgamated bands in order to survive.
