Copthorne is in the centre of the hundreds of Surrey

Copthorne was a hundred in what is now Surrey, England. It includes the following places: Ashtead, Burgh, Cuddington, Epsom, Ewell, Fetcham, Headley, Leatherhead, Mickleham, Pachevesham (near Leatherhead), Tadworth, Thorncroft and Walton-on-the-Hill.[1]

However, actually in the Domesday Book, the towns of Ashtead, Fetcham and Mickleham were included in the Wallington (hundred), apparently by mistake. They are part of the Copthorne hundred.[2]

Copthorne appears in Domesday as Copededorne. Copthorne was a hundred (these are not marked on the Surrey Domesday map, which shows only Domesday manors), an administrative area, where local leaders met about once a month. [3]
