Bradley Hundred in Gloucestershire

Bradley Hundred is a hundred of Gloucestershire, in the east of the county. It is bounded to the north by Kiftsgate hundred; to the east by Slaughter Hundred; to the south-east by Brightwells Barrow hundred; to the south-west by Rapsgate hundred; to the west by Cheltenham Hundred; and to the north-west by those of Deerhurst and Cleeve.

It comprises the ancient parishes of:

*: Remainder in Brightwells Barrow hundred.

In 1608 Aylworth and Eastington hamlets in Naunton parish (otherwise in Slaughter Hundred) became associated with Bradley hundred.[1] They were certainly recorded as such in the census reports, but later gazetteers consider the entire ancient parish of Naunton to be in Slaughter hundred.
