History

Federation revival house, Middle Harbour Road

Lindfield means "lime tree field". The Lindfield area was settled in the 1850s. The name derives from the native town of early landowner Mr List, who named his house after Lindfield, Sussex, England. When the railway line came through the area in the 1890s, the name of the property was used to identify the station and neighbourhood.

Suburban development in East Lindfield occurred mostly in the 1950s and 1960s, so most of the houses in East Lindfield are newer and have a different style to those of Lindfield, which mostly pre-date World War II.

East Lindfield became a separate suburb from Lindfield when it was gazetted on 5 August 1994. [2]
