Thanks Val.

County of Murray was very large.

It starts with a 'C' because the next one is Cunningham Creek.

how about Cumbumurra - James Manning squattered at Cumbumurra Station between Binalong and Jugiong.



In 1839 a police border camp was established at Binalong. This was the first European settlement in the area.

* In 1841 Binalong had a population of eleven.

* In 1847 a permanent police force was established. That same year the Swan Inn was open for business.

* By 1848 most of the surrounding area had been settled with large grazing leases.

* The town's first post office was opened for business in 1849.

* A prison block was built in 1850. That year the town was surveyed and gazetted.

* In 1861 both St Peter & St Paul's Catholic Church and the town's first school were opened.
 
Thanks Val.

Cumbermurra

Looks like 'er' after the 'b' and not sure about the last few letters.
