Hertfordshire – Did you know…?
Hertfordshire (abbreviated as Herts) is an inland county in England and one of the Home Counties. The etymological root of the name is the anglo-saxon heort ford, meaning deer crossing (of a watercourse). Deer feature prominently in many county emblems.
Hertfordshire was originally the area assigned to a fortress constructed at Hertford under the rule of Edward the Elder in 913. The name Hertfordshire appears in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle in 1011.
The Domesday Book recorded the county as having nine hundreds. Tring and Danais became one, Dacorum. The other seven were Braughing, Broadwater, Cashio, Edwinstree, Hertford, Hitchin and Odsey.
Hertfordshire is the starting point of the New River: a man made waterway, opened in 1613 to supply London with fresh drinking water.
In the book Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Hertfordshire is the location of Longbourn where the Bennet family lives and of Netherfield Hall where Mr. Bingley stays.
