Notes:
An answer to Mr Frencham's claim. For decades many historians have made the bold statement that Margaret Kennedy and her friend Julia Farrrell were the first to find gold at Bendigo Creek, but on what grounds do they make this statement? Who were these women and what were they doing here in 1851? (The author).
