Hundersfield (also more anciently known as Honersfield and Honnersfield) was a manor and township within the parish of Rochdale, in the hundred of Salford, Lancashire. There are written references to the it dating back to 1202.
The name Hundersfield is a corruption of Honorsfield; and that was derived from the word "Honore", signifying a Saxon lord. Hundersfield was originally one of four townships within Rochdale, but was itself split into four in 1801, namely those of: Blatchinworth and Calderbrook; Todmorden and Walsden; Wardleworth; and Wuerdle and Wardle.
