- List of Delaware Hundreds
A listing of the Hundreds of Delaware. Hundreds are unincorporated subdivisions of counties, equivalent to townships, and were once used as a basis for representation in the
Delaware General Assembly. While their names still appear on all real estate transactions, they presently have no meaningful use or purpose except as a geographical point of reference. The divisions, or "hundreds" as they are called, comes from the times when Delaware and Maryland were colonial holdings of Great Britain. While Delaware alone retains the use of "hundreds", the origin of most "place names" in both states can be traced back to the times of British rule.
