In the years after their founding, Enedwaith lay between Arnor to the north and Gondor to the south, and so the people who lived here were known as the 'middle-folk'. Though Enedwaith did not belong to either Kingdom, it was jointly administered by the Dúnedain, and the Wild Men who lived here ultimately did so under their control. Tolkien goes so far as to hint that, in the earliest days of the Two Kingdoms, Enedwaith was considered to fall within the boundaries of Gondor.
Enedwaith has been populated by men since the First Age, although not much is known about them until the Second Age, where they came into contact with the Numenoreans. During the War of the Elves and Sauron, the land was largely devastated by the war and was home to one of the major battles where Sauron was defeated. Most of the native population at that time had been reduced to a few families of hunters that had withdrawn to a small forest on the very coastline.
Upon the foundation of Arnor, the land became populated again, and the town of Tharbad sprung up on the banks of the Gwathlo. However, upon Arnor's division, Enedwaith became part of Cardolan and upon Cardolan's defeat in 1406, the land once again became depopulated as the Servants of Angmar slowly made their way south, ravaging and pillaging the defenceless lands.
By the late Third Age, only a few people lived there, and most of these were Hillmen from Dunland, and only a few were from what had been Cardolan. In the dying years of the Third Age, Tharbad was ruined by a huge flood and most of the last inhabitants fled the land.
