For a definition of "wapentake", see the article entitled Hundred (county division) in Wikipedia.

Wapentakes, the Old Norse form of the Anglo-Saxon "hundred", are dealt with in Section 1.4, but Sections 1.1 (Hundred courts) and 1.2 (Administrative functions) deal with the concept and purposes of wapentakes along with those of "hundreds" used in English counties further south.

Buckrose (#2 on map) was a wapentake of the historic East Riding of Yorkshire, England consisting of the northwest part of the county. Its territory is now partly in the modern East Riding (post-1996) and partly in North Yorkshire (post 1974). Buckrose also had a detached section comprising an area west of the City of York in the West Riding of Yorkshire. At some stage this was transferred to the Ainsty Wapentake.

Established in medieval times, Buckrose Wapentake ceased to have much significance in the 19th century when the wapentakes were succeeded by other administrative divisions for most local government purposes.
