"KINGSBRIDGE, a hundred in the N of Wilts; containing Chiseldon parish, ten other parishes, and part of another. Acres: 37,885. Population in 1851: 14,045; in 1861: 15,363. Houses: 3,036."

To place the hundred within the county, see Map of the Hundreds of Wiltshire, 1832, a map from HMSO Boundary Commissioners, dated 1832, provided by A Vision of Britain through Time.

The Hundred and its individual parishes are covered in Volume 9 of the Victoria County History for Wiltshire
