Hundred Ho

Early-attested site in the Parish of Bromsgrove


Robert del Hundred is mentioned in 1275 in the Subsidy Roll for King's Norton and may have derived his name from here. Possibly the hundred courts for Halfshire were sometimes held here (cf. Duignan PN Wo 89). Cf. Hundred House in Great Witley supra 23.
