First European child
I have removed two claims about the first European child.
The first known European child born at the site of Balaklava was a teamster's son, Jonathan Robbins, on 14 February 1859. http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article35027320 *James and Mary Dunn had a son (James) on 12th July, 1847, while living in Balaklava..bringing into question whether Jonathan Robbins can be claimed as "first European" child born in the area.*
The first claim is cited (the footnote reference is to a different newspaper than the URL following it)  but the article only says he was born there, not that he was first. The second is supported by an edit comment " I, Fiona Dunn, am a direct descendant of James and Mary, their son James Jnr, being my Great, Great Grandfather." but no published reference.
