Additional information

In colonial Canterbury town sections were in Lyttelton and the original settlement of Christchurch. Christchurch was then bounded by the north, east and south belts (Bealey, Fitzgerald and Moorhouse avenues). On the west, it was bounded by the roads which circle Hagley Park. Property outside these boundaries were 'rural sections' and the List of sections deals with these properties.
