Seat of Government Surrender Act (NSW) Act 9 of 1915
This document, assented to by the Governor-General in 1915, provided for the transfer of 28 square miles of land at Jervis Bay
to the Commonwealth, in addition to the areas surrendered under the Seat of Government Acceptance Act 1909
and the Seat of Government Surrender Act 1909
These areas became the Territory of Jervis Bay under the Commonwealth Acceptance Act 1915
This was a small reduction in the area of New South Wales, six years after the first transfer of territory for the seat of government. It was necessary following the establishment of the Royal Australian Naval College at Captains Point.
There was one further adjustment to the Jervis Bay Territory in 1922
after Charles Scrivener advised on the correction of errors in the original surveys.
This document is held by the New South Wales Lands Titles Office.
