Cornwall was, from Anglo-Saxon times until the 19th century, divided into hundreds. In the Cornish language the word for "hundred" is keverang (pl. keverangow) and is the equivalent of the Welsh cantref.

By 1841 Cornwall was composed of ten hundreds:

  • Penwith(Penwyth)
  • Kerrier (Keryer)
  • Pydarshire (Pedera)
  • Powdershire (Pow Ereder)
  • Triggshire (Trigor)
  • Lesnewth (Lysnowyth)
  • Stratton (Stradneth)
  • West Wivelshire (Fawy)
  • East Wivelshire (Ryslegh)
  • Scilly
