History/Origin The Hundred of Reynolds was one of six Hundreds in the County of Gladstone in the Roper River area, gazetted in January, 1873. It was named after Thomas Reynolds, Commissioner for Crown Lands who came to the NT in 1873/74 after G B Scott had replaced Bloomfield Douglas to improve the local administration. He died on the wreck of the Gothenburg in February 1875.

The Hundred lapsed with the passage in 1976 and subsequent assent of the Crown Lands Ordinace 1976 (No 1 of 1977) and the Crown Lands (Validation of Proclamations) Ordinance 1976 (No 2 of 1977).
