History

First created 1956-1970, the district was revived at the 1998 redistribution of electoral boundaries and was formerly Ross Smith.

Name origin: In 1843 George Hickox laid out the village of Enfield that comprised 44 quarter acre blocks. 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.

Size: Approximately 19.7 km²

Location: To the immediate north of the electoral districts of Adelaide and Croydon, and extending to Grand Junction Road to the North. The area is residential with some light industry.

Key boundary changes compared to 2010: Enfield gains the suburb of Manningham. It loses the suburb of Woodville Gardens, part of the suburb Ferryden Park, and the remainder of the suburb of Kilkenny.
