    Notes 
    • Ref:Kogarah City Council records

      Fanny's father,James Jnr, was the son of James Oatley, a clock and watchmaker in England when at the age of 44 he was sentenced to transportation for stealing two feather beds.He arrived in Australia in January 1815 and was fortunate, despite being a convict, to be allowed, under Governor Macquarie's administration, to establish himself as a watch and clockmaker in George Street.

      James Oatley received a Conditional Pardon on 25 October 1821.

      There appears to be some mystery surrounding James Oatley's marital relationships. It is documented that he married Sarah Bennett on 27 October 1802 although it appears to be Mary Stokes, mother of his four children, who took Sarah Bennett's place for the journey to Australia. It does not appear that he ever formalised his relationship with Mary once he reached the colonies. The Oatley family in Australia consisted of father, James; mother, Mary; and four sons: Robert, James, Frederick and George. The relationship between James and Mary appears to have been happy until the early 1830s because in September 1833 James Oatley married another Mary, Mary Ann Bogg (nee Cowell) although this marriage did not work out well and by early 1838 she was living with someone else.

      James Oatley died at his residence at Snugborough Park on 8 October 1839 and was buried in a vault on his farm. His second son, Frederick (1819-1890) inherited the "Needwood Forest" grant and followed his father's footsteps becoming a watchmaker.James Jnr, was Mayor of Sydney in 1862 and Member for Canterbury in the Legislative Assembly 1864-1869.
