Enfield used to be a group of settlements which were united by 1 church, which by the High Middle Ages in 1303 included a small agrarian market town, hamlets spread around the royal hunting grounds of Enfield Chase.

Tottenham is believed to have been named after Tota, a farmer, whose hamlet was stated in the Domesday Book. ‘Tota’s hamlet’, it is thought, developed into ‘Tottenham’. The settlement was recorded in the Domesday Book as Toteham. It is not related to Tottenham Court Road in Central London, though the two names share a similar-sounding root.

There have been many notable people from Enfield and Tottenham throughout the years.

Some of these include:

• Skepta
• Josiah Forster
• Russell Kane
• John Dalton (musician)
