West Barnfield Hundred, shown within the Lathe of Aylesford and Kent

West Barnfield or Little Barnfield is a hundred of Kent that forms part of the Lathe of Aylesford.

The hundred consists solely of the southern portion of the ancient parish of Goudhurst*. In this part of Kent the hundreds are very small, and frequently their bounds incorporate only parts of parishes. This is especially true of West Barnfield, which only incorporates a part of a single parish, and its neighbour East Barnfield, which similarly only includes part of Hawkhurst.

*: Goudhurst extends into Cranbrook and Marden hundreds.

Greenwood's county history of Kent had only this to say about the hundred:[1]

Is hardly more than a nominal hundred, including only the south-east part of the Parish of Goudhurst, but having neither the village nor church within its bounds.
It is the least populous of Kent's hundreds, with a population of just 589.
