The Gloucestershire Bailiwick

The territory covered by a High Sheriff is known as his bailiwick and for Gloucestershire this covers the administrative areas of Gloucestershire County Council and of South Gloucestershire District Council. Historically, the Shires (or Counties) of England were divided into 'hundreds' for purposes of administration, and Gloucestershire is still mapped in this way by GENUKI.
