Surname: Billy Foster (Indigenous)
First Name: -
Ship: -
Date: 10 August 1833
Place: Dungog
Source: The Wingham Chronicle 10 August 1943
Details: Harking back to Hannas store, the commodities therein, although probably of limited quantity and range, proved a source of attraction to the blacks and a raid was made on the premises during the darkness of a July night in 1833. Entrance to the premises was effected by the simple process of lifting the roof off, which, being made of bark, offered no serious obstacle to the marauders. They got away with several bags of flour, a musket, two axes and a number of blankets and bolts of winsey. A hue and cry was raised next day and two constables succeeded in effecting the arrest of Billy Foster, Cocky and Tommys Martha. They were brought for trial but managed to escape from the lock up and were never seen afterwards. A reward of 2 pounds was offered by the authorities for their apprehension

Item: 176314
Surname: Billy Good-day (Indigenous)
First Name: -
Ship: -
Date: 26 May 1849
Place: Jerrys Plains
Source: MM
Details: Very dry weather is the sad remark introductory to all conversation here, whether between old friends or strangers. Evan the black native joins in the lamentation, but there is a sly expression or conscious mimicry in his eye which assures you that he, at least is only pretending to look before and after, and sigh for what is not. Our sable brethren by the bye, are turning the lowness of the river to good account, by dragging the holes with a net, which they carry about with them in a basket. They boast of not having left a fish between this and Singleton. Having spent a few days here in fishing by day and drinking rum by night, they have gone higher up the river, promising if they can find a market for their fish to have a good spree on their return. Billy Good-day, the black who lost his arm in Maitland is apparently the leading man of the party, being the owner of lessee of the fishing net. A friend of mine endeavoured to reason with Billy on the folly of spending his earnings in rum, instead of buying tea and sugar, shirts, and such like solid comforts; but billy answered, Murry fond of rum, massa; blackfellow always buy rum always!, laying an emphasis on the last word, as if twas written in the book of fate, and therefore useless to talk of altering it.

Item: 177476
Surname: Biraban (Indigenous)
First Name: -
Ship: -
Date: -
Place: Lake Macquarie
Source: An Australian Language as spoken by the Awabakal, the people of Awaba, Lake Macquarie, being an account of their language, traditions and customs - Lancelot Threlkeld
Details: Analysis of the name Biraban - The word is formed from Bira, the cry of the bird which we call the Eagle hawk. The -ban postfixed denotes the one who does the action. As applied to McGill, the name may have been given to him from some circumstance in his infancy, perhaps his infantile cry. Eagle Hawk may have been his totem or family name; or, as our blackfellows name their children from some trivial incident at the time of birth, he may have been called Biraban, becaue an eagle hawk was seen or heard then

Date: 1820s
Place: Newcastle / Lake Macquarie
Source: Glenrock Lagoon Cultural Landscape Conservation Management and Cultural Tourism Plan NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service
Details: The Awabakal man who stands out in the historical record is Wepohng, better known as Biraban or Magill. He was clearly a superb linguist and a great teacher and is probably largely responsible, through translation, for much of the information Threlkeld collected. He moved freely between Lake Macquarie and Newcastle and was well acquainted with the various routes through the SRA. Born c. 1800 he had spent time in Sydney, where he learnt to speak English fluently. In 1821 he was sent with Captain Francis Allman to set up the new penal settlement at Port Macquarie, where he also acted as bush constable. On his return to Newcastle he married Tipahmahah, by whom he had a son Yerowwa/Francis, born in 1823 (Gunson 1974: 317)
