THE HUNDRED OF TWYFORD.

SOUTHWARD from the hundred of Little field lies that of Twyford, written in the book of Domesday, Tuiferde, and so called from the two fords which were formerly over the two streams of the Medway, just above Yalding in this hundred.

THIS HUNDRED contains within its bounds the parishes of
1. NETTLESTED,
2. WATRINGBURY,
3. TESTON, and
4. WEST FARLEIGH;
And part of the parishes of
5. EAST PECKHAM,
6. YALDING, and
7. HUNTON.
And all the churches of those parishes.

It likewise contains part of the parishes of BRENCHLEY, CAPEL, MARDEN, PEMBURY, and TUDELEY, the churches of which are in other hundreds.
