Hentland is a parish north of Bridstow whose name is supposed to derive from an early (6th century) medieval monastic foundation - Henllan meaning 'old church' in an anglicized version of Welsh. It had detached portions to the west so Hentland land can appears on maps not primarily about the parish.
