This list of the residents and their occupations of Turallin township and surrounding properties is by no means complete.  Names are added as they crop up in stories and articles, and found on Electoral Rolls from 1903 to 1921, with more to come.  The Electoral Rolls give us our residents' occupations (reprinted below) and the unique property names like Honeysuckle, Savernake, Liselican or Wattlewood, amongst others.  It was interesting to see a definite downturn in the number of people enrolled to vote after 1914.  Turallin's boomtime seems to have been over by then.  Luckily, we have a record of women on the Rolls thanks to the Commonwealth Franchise Act being passed in 1905, enabling all women to vote for the first time.  By 1921 some entries say "Turallin via Millmerran" - Millmerran now connected to the outside world by rail is starting to thrive.  


Hopefully, one day a distant ancestor of a Turallinite may stumble across this site thanks to this list.  Additions always welcome!
