Possible site of the Hundred Court, Coleshill
Possible site of Hundred Court on The Croft next to the Parish (former Minster) church.
1 Site of The Hundred Court, Coleshill.
The Coleshill Hundred was the largest of the 10 Warwickshire Hundreds in 1086, and the Hundred Court met six-monthly at Coleshill possibly on the area next to the Parish (former Minster) church known as The Croft where faint earthworks can be seen. The site is near a crossroads, a common meeting place of the Hundred Court, as is a ford, also to be found not far away.
By 1161 – 62 it had transferred to Hemlingford Green near Kingsbury. The now three-weekly Hundred Court continued to meet at Coleshill until 1789.
