About the Cottesloe Electorate

Number of Electors: 26,034 (9 March 2015)
Source: Western Australian Electoral Commission. State Electorate Information.
Nomenclature: In September 1886, the Commissioner of Crown Lands, John Forrest, announced his intention of subdividing an area of crown land between Perth and Fremantle into suburban lots and asked His Excellency, Governor Sir Frederick Napier Broome, to suggest a name. The Governor suggested "Cottesloe" on 21 September after "the title lately bestowed on a member of the Fremantle family". "Cottesloe" was named after Thomas Francis Fremantle, Lord Cottesloe, first Baron of Swanbourne (in 1874), the older brother to Captain Charles Howe Fremantle who, on 2 May 1829 raised the first British flag at Fremantle.
