Nomenclature: The area which today comprises the suburb of "Churchlands" was originally granted to Henry Trigg in 1831. In September 1891, this area was acquired by the Roman Catholic Bishop of Perth, the Right Reverend Matthew Gibney. Gibney was far sighted in his acquisition of land for the Church, and this area became known as "Church Lands" as a result of it being owned by the Church. The City of Perth referred to an area just south of here as "Churchlands" as early as 1924.
