Descendents of William Thomas Bull celebrate 100 years in the district with a William’s Beer, named for their ancestor.
The Bulls have been in Conargo for 100 years and are still going strong after a celebration of the Bull family living in the district this month.
The descendants of William Thomas and Agnes Bull gathered at the original family property ‘Waringah’ to celebrate the milestone on November 11.
About 80 members of the family attended the celebrations.
‘Waringah’ – now owned by Colin and Marg Bull – was settled by W.T. and Agnes Bull after their property near Griffith was reclaimed by the government to create Griffith and its nearby village Bilbul (which was named in recognition of W.T. Bull) after World War I.
In early November 1912, W.T. and Agnes travelled along the Mabin’s Well Rd and found their new property with a wagon and supplies.
In November 2012, family members gathered around that same wagon – now housed in a shed at ‘Waringah’ – to remember and celebrate their family history.
W.T. and Agnes Bull had five sons – Bill, Stuart, Jack, Don and Lloyd - who all married and settled on properties in the Conargo and Deniliquin area. They also had one daughter, Ella.
Each of those children had family members present at the reunion, with four generations with relatives travelling from Western Australia, Queensland, Victoria, locally and across NSW.
The family also celebrated with William’s Beer, a brew made by the De Bortoli family and named after W.T. Bull in recognition of their winery operations being based at Bilbul.
