Statistical only

This unit has been constructed for statistical reporting purposes only. It has no legal existence.

Notes:

The early nineteenth century censuses all list a single Hundred, 'Beaminster and Redhone'. However, Youngs' listing of two separate Hundreds, 'Beaminster' and 'Beaminster Forum and Redhone', is supported by other earlier sources including the 14th century Poll Tax (see C. Fenwick, The Poll Taxes of 1377, 1379 and 1381, vol. 1 (OUP, 1998)). This unit is the nineteenth century Hundred, to which census data should be linked.
