    This title is incorrect in that this is the Mansion House and not the Manor House. It was constructed in 1879 (not 1887) for Benjamin John Sutherland, a Newcastle grain and coal merchant, and sometime Sheriff of the city. After his death, ownership passed in 1915 to Arthur Munro Sutherland, one of his sons. Arthur Munro bequeathed in to the city as its Mansion House in his Will which role it has fulfilled since 1953.
