Hundreds of Harford County in 1783

Map by Jon Livezey.

Hundreds as a political subdivision date back to the Roman occupation of Britain. There are several variations of the original meaning of the term. The most commonly accepted is that is was an area that contained 100 families. Another variation is that it was an area that was large enough to raise an army of 100 men. From the late 1600s to early 1800s in Maryland the term was applied as a political subdivision of the county primarily for tax purposes and judicial affairs. The equivalent term today for a hundred is an election district within the county.
