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.

Hang East Wapentake (#4 on the map) was located in the North Riding of Yorkshire. It was bounded on the west by Hang West, by Gilling East on the north and northeast, by Hallikeld on the southeast, and by the Lower Division of Claro Wapentake in the West Riding on the south. The division between Hang East and Gilling East Wapentakes varied over time.
