I have found some things of historical interest which explain some of these
Ellimo is what the guvmint said it was called
Myall Park is what the locals called it 
Climsland is how the Education Dept named the school as Myall Park was already 
in use
Myall Park is the only surviving name for the locality.
That's how Ellimo got onto the map from the NSWGNB.
