Where's the Hundred of Frome?

When I first came across the website regarding the Hundred of Frome, I didn't understand what "The Hundred" of Frome meant. I started researching online and discovered that (according to the Oxford dictionary) the term "Hundred" is used in England as well as Ireland referring to a subdivision of the shire or county. The Hundred of Frome is located in Somerset England and consists of the following parishes and locations:
Beckington, Berkley, Cloford, Elm, Frome Selwood, Laverton, Lullington, Marston Bigot, Nunney, Orchardleigh, Rode (Road), Rodden, Standerwick, Wanstrow, Whatley and Woolverton and the neighboring areas of East Cranmore, Leigh upon Mendip, Mells and Witham Friary and the Peculiar of Buckland Dinham.

This website provides valuable information for the genealogist researching in the areas listed above. Searching for ancestors in this location is made easy by clicking on the tabs across the top of the site. The tabs include locations, families, censuses, church records, property records and others. Records that are available to searching, are transcribed or donated by volunteers. David Smart, the web author, welcomes you to contact him regarding contributing information that pertains to this site.
