History

The district of Enfield, as it exists now, was created at the 1998 boundary redistribution to replace the former district of Ross Smith, and was represented for the first time in 2002. A previous electoral district of Enfield existed from 1956 – 1970.

Origin of the name

Enfield takes its name from the suburb of Enfield which lies at its centre. The South Australian village of Enfield was laid out in 1843 by George Hickox. He named the village after his birthplace in Middlesex, England - derived from either the Anglo-Saxon word ‘enedfeld’ meaning duck field or the old English word 'feld' meaning open country.

Key boundary changes compared to 2014

Enfield gains the suburbs of Lightsview and Northgate, and gains parts of the suburbs of Northfield and Prospect. Enfield loses the suburbs of Angle Park, Manningham, Mansfield Park and Regency Park, and the remainder of the suburbs of Collinswood and Ferryden Park.
