About the Warren-Blackwood Electorate

Number of Electors: 25,992 (9 March 2015)
Source: Western Australian Electoral Commission. State Electorate Information.
Named after the two rivers in the electorate. The Warren River was discovered in 1831, and was named by Governor Stirling, probably after Admiral Sir John Borlase Warren under whom Stirling served whilst in action in North America in 1813. The Blackwood was also named by Stirling in 1830 after Captain (later Rear Admiral) Sir Henry Blackwood under whom he served in 1808-09 whilst in action in the North Sea and the Mediterranean.
