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 here deferred but that of Holford parish has already been published (fn. 2) and the histories of Blackford and Holton are given below because of their intimate relationship with neighbouring parishes in Bruton and Horethorne hundreds and their relative isolation from the main part of Whitley hundred.
