THE HUNDRED OF GREAT BARNEFIELD,

LIES on the other, or southern side of the hundred of Cranbrooke; and here it should be observed, that Great and Little, or East and West Barnefield, are in fact but two half hundreds, and formerly had their separate names of the eastern half hundred, and the western half hundred of Barnefield; which division was occasioned by their lying in two different laths.

The hundred of Great Barnefield; lies in the lower division of the lath of Scray,

AND CONTAINS WITHIN ITS BOUNDS THE GREATEST PART OF THE PARISH OF
HAWKHURST,

With the church of it, and part of the parish of CRANBROOKE, the church of which is in another hundred. One constable has jurisdiction over it.
