Thomas (1st) SULLIVAN was born on the 17th July,1837, in Flemingstown Dingle Co. Kerry. His parents being - Mr Cornelious Sullivan.
On 11th April, 1866, Mrs Thomas (1st) Sullian maried Miss Ellen Sullivan was born at Adrigole, County Cork, Ireland , on the 16th April, 1842, (No relation)
Thomas (1st) died in 1924 in Tumut, NSW.
Tumut - By the death of Mrs Thomas Sullivan of Blowering, Tumut, on the 14th inst.
Tumut loses one of it staunchest and most devoted though unobtrusive Catholics. Mrs Sullivan was born at Adrigole, County Cork, Ireland , on the 16th April, 1842, and came to Australia in the ship "Hornet" in 1861, being met in Sydney by the late Mr Peter Sullivan of Coolac. The terminus of the railway was then at Campbelltown, and the journey had to be made per cart to Coolac, the time occupied being nearly three weeks.
Ellen Sullivan, as she was then, remained at Coolac and Gundagai till she married Thomas (1st) Sullivan, who, though of the same name, was no relation.
The marriage took place on 11th April, 1866, and immediately afterwards the young couple took land at Blowering, where they have lived ever since, a period of fifty-five years. Being a capable, energetic and stout hearted woman, she helped her husband to amass a comfortable independence, but did not live long to enjoy the rest she had earned. Looking back over those fifty five years, she wonders how many of the present generation would to-day face what these old pioneers faced then. There were no mail services, no roads, bush tracks only, a new one being followed as the old became, impassable.
The deceased lady was most hospitable, and the caller could always he sure of a welcome and the best the home could afford. She took a kindly interest in everyone with whom she became acquainted and had a wonderful power of making friends.
The parish priest and his assistant, Rev. Father Devine, were most attentive in ministering to her and when the end came she was quite prepared to meet it as a good Catholic should.
The funeral took place on Friday, in the midst of a very large assemblage, the last offices being conducted by the Rev; Father Devine. The deceased leaves a grown family of four sons and two daughters, as well as an aged husband and one sister to mourn her loss.

They were sponsered by their eldest sister Mary Sullivan who had arrived 8 years earlier on the Orphan ship “Thomas Arbuthnot” 3/2/1850. - (Ref- Ruth Reid).
THOMAS (1st) SULLIVAN - & his sister Margaret upon their arrival in Sydney got a lift with a bullock team to Coolac, settled for a while then walked all the way to Tumut where the first people they met with were “The Ryans”.
Records show that he apparently travelled straight to Tumut Plains, via Tumut.
Thomas tried his luck at the Kiadra Gold Diggings but did not stay long.
He first took up land at "Forest Camp," Tumut Plains and in 1861 purchased 40 acres from Mr W ILett (ILest) which formed his home and the nucleus of large productive holdings of later years, adding to it from time to time.
The next move was to purchase rich farming land on both sides of the Tumut River in the Blowering Valley. No doubt this would have been in the Robertson Land Act introduction period of time when the Blowering Valley was split up and the Station was to become much smaller. As it happened Thomas and his wife Ellen were to stay in the valley for about 70 years and became very prosperous and eventually after their deaths the family sold out in about 1930.

1898 - YALLOWIN. - FROM OUR OWN COBBESPONDENT.) - Monday, October 3.
One of the most enjoyable dances that has ever taken place in this thriving little community of Blowering was the cricketers ball, that took place at the residence of Mr. Thomas Sullivan on Friday night last. I attended merely with the intention of furnishing your valuable journal with a report and as I am not a great dancer I expected but little enjoyment otherwise; but as night wore on I found that; I was in for a real night's enjoyment among the genial and convivial lads and lassies that Blowering can boast of.
The splendid gathering was also organised as an opportunity for the many friends of Mr George Lambert to wish him good-bye, who were rather surprised a short time back to learn that this must estimable young man who held the position of hon. secretary of the Blowering Cilcket Club for a number of years, was about to take his departure from our midst. Immediately upon receipt of this news the cricketers decided upon giving him a suitable send off in recognition of the valuable services he had rendered to their club. Upon Mr. Lambert learning that such a movement was at foot he immediately declined to allow the movers to proceed wih their Intention. So eventually it was decided to hold a cricketers' ball so that the numerous friends of this gentleman would have an opportunity of bidding him a hearty farewell, and I must congratulate the members of the above club for the pronounced success of their undertaking.
The holding capactity of Mr. Sullivan's large house was severely taxed especially in the first part of the night, when the attendance must have numbered fully 45 couples. The large front rooms were cleaned out, each room providing ample dancing accommodation for some 14 or 15 couples. Gilmore, Tumut and Tumut Plains, were also well represented, and quite a number from these places were of the fairer sex. The catering was under the supervision of Mrs. and Miss Sullivan, who are really adepts in this particular capacity. The tables were arranged in the spacious front verandah, which was enclosed with the cricketing matting, so and presented the appearance ot a banquet hall.
I must compliment Mrs. and Miss Sullivan for the admirable taste they displayed in arranging the fimpting hands, and the unparalleled attention that one and all received whilst seated are the long rows of tables. While the dinner was being satisfied a chairman in Mr. J. Sullivan was found, who proposed the health of Mr. Geo. Lambert in very complimentary terms, this being the toast of the evening.
Mr. Lambert responded in a nicely worded speech, in which he thanked the chairman for the complimentary remarks passed by him, and said he must admit it was a very hard task to have to leave Blowering, where he had spent the happiest days of his life, and the thoughts of his past life at Blowering would always be a bright spot in his memory.
Numerous other toasts were proposed and responded to in suitable terms, after which dancing was continued until daylight, when our carnival friends returned to their respective homes, well aware that they had participated in one of the most successful and enjoyable dances ever held on Blowering. - (Ref- Albury Banner and Wodonga Express (NSW : 1896 - 1939)(about) Previous issue Friday 14 October 1898).

Within the past few weeks the weather has been very changeable; but it now shows signs of an alteration for the better, and spring is fast approaching. The aspect of the country has greatly improved, and everything looks brighter and more promising than it did a short time ago.
It seems that Acting-Judge: Forbes has had severe strictures passed upon his mode of dealing with cases at Wagga Wagga as well as here, his comments on the case of Hales v. tho Sugar Company, heard at tho District Court there, having been severely blamed in one of the local journals. I fancy that Mr. Forbes would find himself more at home in his former position of Crown Prosecutor and advocate than on tbe Bench.
News is scarce this week, and although mining operations nnd speculation continue I have nothing of importance to record at present. _ (Ref- The Gundagai Times and Tumut, Adelong and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser (NSW : 1868 - 1931)(about) Previous issue Saturday 14 September 1872 Next issue Previous page Page 2).

Within the past few weeks the weather has been very changeable; but it now shows signs of an alteration for the better, and spring is fast approaching. The aspect of tho country has greatly improved, and everything looks brighter and more promising than it did a short time ago. It seems that Acting Judge Forbes has had severe restrictures passed upon his mode of dealing with cases at Wagga Wagga as well as here, his comments on the case of Hales v. the Sugar Company, heard at the District Court there, having been severely blamed in one of the local journals. I fancy that Mr. Forbes would find himself more at homo in his former position of Crown Prosecutor und advocate than on tbo Bench. News is scarce this week, and although mining operations nnd speculntion continue I have nothing of importance to record at present. - (Ref- The Gundagai Times and Tumut, Adelong and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser (NSW : 1868 - 1931)(about) Previous issue Saturday 14 September 1872 Next issue Previous page Page 1 2).
