Clavering hundred was a hundred – or geographical subdivision – comprising parishes and settlements in Essex and Norfolk. Hundreds were divisions of areas of land within shires or counties for administrative and judicial purposes – and for the collection of taxes.
In the Domesday Book of 1086, there were 27 places listed as part of the hundred. The two largest settlements within the hundred were Raveningham, with 115.5 households - according to the Domesday Book - and Clavering, with 80 households. Clavering had the largest taxable value within the hundred.
