HANFORD, an extra-parochial liberty, in that part of the hundred of Redlane which is in the Sturminster division of Dorset, 5ΒΌ miles (N. W. by N.) from Blandford-Forum; containing 19 inhabitants, and comprising 760 acres of land. This was once a distinct parish. Here is a chapel, in which service is performed every Sunday; it is the burial-place of the family of Seymer, whose mansion is situated on the south side, and northward are the foundations of an ancient village.
