Description:   A lands administrative division. The Parish of Sutherland was originally proclaimed on 23 May 1835 as "Southerland", which was the name shown on the original parish map, and was apparently the name selected by Surveyor-General Mitchell for the first parish south of the Georges River. However, 4 days later on 27 May 1835, the proclaimation was reprinted with admendments, including changing the name to "Sutherland". (Sutherland Shire Council)
