Confoys and Goulburn, NSW, Australia

Goulburn, NSW, Australia seems to be the first noted location of the Confoys in Australia.  I have not yet found out any of the history of why this might be so.  Any information will be useful.  There is a street called Confoy Place in Goulburn and a Carr-Confoy sports field also in Goulburn.  The Confoy in this case is evidently Jack Confoy a locally famous bicycle road racer whom seems to have won almost every race he was in that was reported in the newspapers.  Some of his victories follow:
