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.

Hallikeld Wapentake was located on the southern edge of the North Riding of Yorkshire and in a central position east to west. It was bounded on the west and northwest by Hang West Wapentake, on the northeast and east by Gilling East, Birdforth and Bulmer, on the south and west by the Upper Division of Claro Wapentake in the West Riding.

The ancient parishes of Hallikeld were not contiguous. Burneston, Kirklington, Pickhill, Wath (near Ripon), and West Tanfield were separated from Cundall and Kirby Hill by a section of Topcliffe (near Thirsk) parish in Birdforth Wapentake.

Hallikeld Wapentake is sometimes spelled Halikeld.
