Nicholas McCann came c1840 to Melbourne with Catherine Neilson lived at Geelong Nicholas McCann provided limestone and cement used in St Paul's cathedral The Temperance Hall at Ceres was erected in 1861 for the Barrabool Hills Total Abstinence Society, in reaction to the apparent intemperance of the Ceres district - an area noted for its prolific vineyards. Design and construction of the sandstone hall, entry porch and steep pitched roof is attributed to local stonemason Nicholas McCann. The Temperance hall was acquired by the Blue Ribbon Society in 1883 and is part of a notable group of sandstone buildings of similar character in the Ceres area.

McCANN, Peter (1828-19 June 1908 ), builder, quarrymaster and cement manufacturer, and Wesley Burrett McCann (1874-1961), cement manufacturer, were father and son. Peter was born on 18 September 1828 at Parramatta, New South Wales, son of Nicholas McCann (1803-1880), stonecutter, and his wife Catherine, née Johnson.
His mother died in 1831 shortly after the family moved to Georgetown, Tasmania, and his baby sister Ann, adopted by a Launceston couple, was taken to England. About 1836 Peter accompanied his father to Port Fairy, Port Phillip District, helping him in whaling and squatting pursuits until 1841 when Nicholas moved to Geelong and returned to the building trade. In 1850 Peter, now in partnership with his father, went to England to bring back his sister and returned with a wife Elizabeth, née Begley, whom he had married on 26 September 1850 at the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, Grantham, Lincolnshire. In 1854 he established his home at Ceres in the Barrabool Hills where he and his father opened a sandstone quarry.
Wesley was born on 21 October 1874 at Ceres, the sixteenth and last child.
