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.

Holderness was a wapentake of the historic East Riding of Yorkshire, England consisting of the southeasterly part of the county. Established in medieval times, it ceased to have much significance in the 19th century when the wapentakes were superseded by other administrative divisions for most local government purposes.

Because of its large area it was sub-divided into three divisions:

  • North Division (#9 on map)
  • Middle Division (#11 on map)
  • South Division (#12 on map)
