The suburb is named after South Australia's first Governor, Sir John Hindmarsh.
Hindmarsh was the first private town laid out in the colony of South Australia. The Village of Hindmarsh was established on land owned by Governor Hindmarsh which, in 1838, he appears to have sold to relatives. It seems the Governor "acquired a dubious reputation by prohibiting squatting in the Parklands, thus forcing people to acquire land in the subdivision".
The age distribution of Hindmarsh residents is similar to that of the greater Australian population. 70.8% of residents were over 25 years in 2006, compared to the Australian average of 66.5%; and 29.2% were younger than 25 years, compared to the Australian average of 33.5%.
