Bray hundred in Berkshire

Bray Hundred is one of the hundreds of Berkshire. It is situated in the north-eastern part of the county, bounded to the east by the Thames, across which lies Buckinghamshire. To the north lies Cookham Hundred; to the south, Ripplesmere Hundred; and to the west, Beynhurst Hundred. There is also a boundary with a detached part of Wargrave Hundred to the south-west.

The hundred seems to have been co-extensive with the parish of Bray at the time of the Domesday Survey.[1] It is one of the Seven Hundreds of Windsor Forest which were often termed the Seven Hundreds of Cobham and Bray during the 13th and 14th centuries.

Bray Hundred had a population of 32,649 in 2011.
