 Following a previous newsletter article about the first white baby born in Shepparton, proposing that Agnes Wilson, born 1856, may have held this honour, we have received information about a Susannah Andrew, born on the 10th September 1855 at Shepparton, Victoria. Birth certificate No 57 in the district of Benalla and 11897 in Victoria. Signed by the registrar at Benalla on 22nd of November 1855, it shows the birthplace as Shepparton, Victoria and the Father as Edward Andrew, stock keeper, age 30, born in Lincolnshire, England .The Witnesses were Mrs Smith of Shepparton and Miss Wilson was the attending nurse.It would seem that Susannah Andrew may therefore have been the first white baby born in Shepparton.
