The borough of Barnet was formed under the London Government Act 1963 in 1965 from the Municipal Borough of Finchley, Municipal Borough of Hendon and the Friern Barnet Urban District of Middlesex and the East Barnet Urban District and Barnet Urban District of Hertfordshire. The Act did not include a name for the new borough. A joint committee of the councils due to be amalgamated suggested "Northgate" or "Northern Heights". Keith Joseph, the Minister of Housing and Local Government, eventually chose the name of Barnet. The place name Barnet is derived from the Old English barnet meaning "Land cleared by burning", which is why the town name of Barnet was considered to be born from fire.
The area of Barnet that is covered by the modern borough has a long and rich history. There has been clear evidence of first-century Roman pottery manufacturing found at Brockley Hill and Roman coins from the third and fourth centuries were found at Burnt Oak. Both these sites are on the Roman road Watling Street from London and St Albans which now forms the western border of Barnet.
Although Hendon is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, the districts of Barnet, Edgware and Finchley were not referred to. The reason for this is believed to be that these areas had already been included in other manors.
In 1471 the Battle of Barnet was fought in Monken Hadley, just within the present borough's boundary. It was here that Yorkist troops led by King Edward IV killed the "Kingmaker" Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick and his brother, John Neville, 1st Marquess of Montagu.
When the present Barnet borough was created, it included part of Elstree. On 1 April 1993 Barnet's northern boundary was altered and some of its more rural northern parts, including Elstree, were transferred to Hertfordshire along with its district of Hertsmere.
