Elves of Lindon by Liz Danforth

The Elves of Lindon were those Elves who dwelt in Lindon in the west of Middle-earth, between the Blue Mountains and the Great Sea, in the Second and Third Ages.

Presumably they were descendants of the Laiquendi of Ossiriand and other Elves (Noldor and Sindar) of the former Beleriand who survived the War of Wrath.

They reached the height of their power in the Second Age under King Gil-galad, but waned after his loss in the Siege of Barad-dûr.
