History at Ullina before the KellyGang

Ullina station runs towards Chiltern, Rutherglen, Wangaratta & Beechworth

It was first taken up by Jason & Hannah Withers in 1847. They had 10 children. One of thier children, Annie Withers married George Smith. They had 6 children. One of their children Edgar Smith married - unknown- and had a child Reginald Smith.

Edgar Smith had a large acreage farm at Wangandary, between Wangaratta and the Warby Ranges which he named 'Ulina' after Jason Withers station. When Edgar Smith passed away on 8/06/1965, Reginald Smith took over the farm.

In 1972 Reginald Smith sold off a large portion of the Ulina farm and built a new house on 180 acres on the bottom portion of the property. He took the Ulina name to the new property.

Robert W.P Ashley has been working on the Withers history and genealogy for a long time and has produced a book on the family.

It is unsure if Ulina was spelt with one L or 2 Ls. Some of the information going back a long way spells the name both ways.

In 1876 the license was held by James Chandler and Robert Turner , ? acres, license fee half year £25
