Attached are articles, written by members of MOTH, about three significant historical figures who have lived at the homestead.

In 1830 Thomas Macquoid kept sheep on the Tuggeranong plain and in 1835 he purchased both Peter Murdoch's 2000 acres and John McLaren's 2560 acres land grants to establish "Waniassa".

The Cunningham papers in the National Library are a record of a 26 year correspondence between Mary Cunningham of Tuggeranong Homestead and Lanyon, and her family and friends.

In 1919, war historian Charles Edwin Woodrow (CEW) Bean and his staff occupied the Homestead where they worked for five and a half years recording the Official History of Australia in the War of 1914-1918.
