Fairfield became part of Hamilton in 1949 and is named after the dairy farm of John Davies, who bought 100 acres from F. R. Claude. Enderley’s suburb name was supposedly inspired by postman Edward Shoard’s house—which was named Enderley. Southwell School on Peachgrove Road was founded in 1911. Tramway Road, which runs through the east side of Enderley, was originally a proposed tram line. Like Fairfield, Enderley joined Hamilton in 1949.
Fairview Downs, meanwhile, was developed in stages. The area south of Powells Road was developed in the 1960s while north of Powells Road became housing in the 70s.
