Hundreds Hundred boundaries are shown by dotted lines on Norden's map, and the areas numbered to a key at the side of the map. Beware that some hundreds have detached parts.
The relationship between modern and old hundreds is very inexact; modern hundreds have little use today.
Also note that Norden or the engraver has made some serious errors in labelling the areas with key numbers, see below.
The key:-
HUNDREDES old name

* 9 Norden has put Bosmere over the top of what is now Bermondspit. Bosmere, today, is Hayling Island which has no number on the map, plus part of Portsdown.

* 31 Norden has 13 on the map where it should be 31 in central Hampshire.

Someone has coloured the hundred boundaries on this copy of the map, we think this was done comparatively recently, and has been done wrongly in places - be careful how you follow the lines.
