WHITLEY HUNDRED

(Part)

Whitley hundred, belonging to the abbots of Glastonbury and located principally in the centre of the county, comprised the parishes of Ashcott, Blackford, Butleigh, Compton Dundon, Cossington, Greinton, High Ham, Holford, Holton, Middlezoy, West Monkton, Moorlinch, Othery, Podimore Milton, Shapwick, Street, Walton, Westonzoyland, Wheathill, and Woolavington. (fn. 1) The history of the hundred is deferred, but the history of Holford is given below because part of the parish, Newhall, lay in Williton hundred, because of its intimate relationship with the neighbouring parish of Dodington, itself in Williton hundred, and because of Holford's isolation from the main part of Whitley hundred. A plot of land at Leigh in Crowcombe was said to have been part of Whitley hundred in 1353. (fn. 2)
