Hemlingford was one of the four hundreds that the English county of Warwickshire was divided into, along with Kington, Knightlow and Barlichway. It was recorded in the Domesday Book under the name of Coleshill.[1]

The hundred covered northern Warwickshire, including Birmingham, Nuneaton, Solihull and Tamworth. It was under the governance of several peers including the Lord of Packington Hall and Lord of Hermitage Manor with accompanying Stewards.[2]

It was itself sub-divided into four subdivisions, those of Atherstone, Birmingham, Solihull and Tamworth.
