Drywall, plasterboard, wallboard,  rock lath, sheetrock are also called gypsum board and are panels made of gypsum plaster pressed between two thick sheets of paper,  the panels are used to make interior walls and ceilings.   The earliest known kind of manufactured board was “Sackett Board” invented in 1894.   Gypsum Board evolved between 1910 and 1930.

Drywall construction became prevalent as a speedier alternative to using plaster based interior finish techniques,  which involved forcefully spreading a substrate of coarse plaster,  known as the base or brown coat on the wall’s lath-work before finally applying the smoother finish coat,  each layer in succession and all by hand.    Drywall by contrast to plaster requires hand finishing only at the fasteners and joints.   The drywall process requires less labor and drying time.
