Edmonton was an ancient hundred in the north of the county of
Middlesex, England. Its former area has been mostly absorbed by the growth of London and it now corresponds to the London Borough of Enfieldand parts of the London Borough of Barnetand London Borough of Haringeyin Greater Londonand the Hertsmeredistrict in Hertfordshire.
The hundred was listed in the
Domesday Bookin 1086, after which there were only very minor boundary changes. It was sometimes known as the "Half Hundred of Mimms".cite web |url=http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=26930 |title=Edmonton Hundred |publication=Victoria County County of Middlesex: Volume 5 |year=1976 | accessdate= 2008-01-07]
It contained the parishes and settlements of Edmonton, Enfield,
Monken Hadley, South Mimmsand Tottenham. It bordered Ossulstonehundred to the south west, and had a boundary with Essexto the east. In the north west it formed a protrusion into Hertfordshire(containing South Mimms and Monken Hadely) and was bounded by it to the north, west and south.
The Hundred Moot appears to have originally been held near
Potters Bar. By the seventeenth century the "mote plane" was in an open area of Enfield Chase. The court for the hundred eventually moved to a public house in Enfield prior to its abolition in 1846.
The following is the population of the parishes in Edmonton Hundred as given at each ten-yearly census from 1801 - 1881: [cite web | url=http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=22159 | title=Table of population, 1801-1901 | publication=Victoria County History of Middlesex: Volume 2 | year=1911 | accessdate=2008-01-06]
The hundreds of England declined in administrative use because of the rise of various "ad-hoc" boards. By 1894 they were effectively replaced by a system of uniform local government districts, which were consolidated over time and finally replaced in 1965/1974 by the
London boroughsand non-metrropolitan districts which are still in use today.
