Buckinghamshire, showing Stoke Hundred

Stoke Hundred is a hundred of Buckinghamshire. It is situated in the south-east of the county, bounded on the east by Middlesex; on the south by Surrey; and on the south-west by Berkshire. In 2011 it had a population of 128,446.


Until at least the time of the Domesday Survey in 1086 there were 18 hundreds in Buckinghamshire. It has been suggested however that neighbouring hundreds had already become more closely associated in the 11th century so that by the end of the 14th century the original or ancient hundreds had been consolidated into 8 larger hundreds.[1] Stoke hundred is one of three hundreds which became collectively known as the Chiltern Hundreds around the 13th century, the others being Burnham Hundred and Desborough Hundred. Even before this time these individual hundreds had become possessions of the Crown and were nominally stewarded as a royal bailiwick.
