This is a list of the 28 hundred names from the Morden map of 1695. The term 'hundred' was used in the Domesday book for administrative areas in each shire, larger than parishes. It was the area notionally supporting a hundred families. There were 28 hundreds in Dorsetshire and 715 in England. The main town/village is sometimes ambiguous; for a key to old place names please visit the placenames page, or for more detail the Domesday Places page.

** Robert Morden appears to have swapped Whitway and Whitechurch hundreds
