History of Lynden Ward

Hartwell village was subdivided in the early 1850s, and with its school and post office was briefly more important than Camberwell village.

Lynden takes its name from the road and park through long-time farming land generally known as Highfield. The first subdivision occurred after World War I, through a property belonging to the Boyd family, and named after trees.

The linden is a lime tree, but the original subdivision plan shows the street spelt with a 'y', which could have been a minor change due to other Linden streets not far away.

It is also possible the name was changed due to anti-German sentiment following the war to avoid associations with the linden avenue in Berlin.
