North Richmond was known as Enfield

In the early years of European Settlement, North Richmond was known as Enfield. The name was changed at a later date during the 19th century to avoid confusion with Enfield in Sydney’s west.

While located to the west of the town of Richmond, it is thought to have been named North Richmond because it was north of Richmond Hill. This hill was named by Governor Philip when travelling up the Hawkesbury River in 1789.
