The Essex Hundreds

Hundreds of Essex
Hundreds Modern

It can be seen from the maps above that the Administrativeshape of Essex has changed substantially in the past 200 years.

I have yet tp allocate the Parish Records details regarding the Smiths’ of Essex to their Hundreds. If you do not know which Hundred your Parish belonged to then comparison with the modern map will help you to locate the Parish you are interested in.
