The London Borough of Enfield

The London Borough of Enfield

The conveyancing solicitor AV Rillo is based in Enfield, a North London borough with a rich and fascinating history. Even residents of Enfield, and other AV Rillo clients, may be unaware of some of the details.

Enfield – the name and early history

Enfield, the home of AV Rillo, was a small settlement even in the days of the Doomsday Book, which referred to it as Enefelde. At that time, potential AV Rillo clients in the area would have been fewer; there were only 400 inhabitants recorded in Enefelde. In those days, London would have been regarded as a distant city. Even before that, the area was connected to London by the great Roman Road, Ermine Street, and there have been excavations to discover the remains of many Roman settlements which were there before the AV Rillo days.

Enfield, AV Rillo, and King Alfred the Great

In efforts to confine the invading Danes to the Eastern side of the River Lea, King Alfred the Great built strongholds in the area. King Offa of Mercia gave lands in Edmonton to monks at the abbey of St. Albans.

Town market and property market

In 1303, well before AV Rillo began offering services to the local property market, the town of Enfield was granted a charter to hold a weekly town market by King Edward the First of England.

Hunting and country houses

In the Middle Ages, the forests around Enfield became an important hunting ground for prosperous Londoners. The property market was active then too, as many of them chose to build country houses in the area, some of which survive to this day.

Queen Elizabeth the First and AV Rillo

Near the current AV Rillo offices in Enfield stood the palace of Edward VI, where the later Queen Elizabeth I lived as a girl. She later held court as queen at the same palace, which is remembered in the street name Palace Gardens, though no traces of the palace itself remain.
