=== [[Allerton, Yorkshire Genealogy|Allertonshire]] ===
+
=== Image Visibility ===
Despite the name, Allertonshire is not actually an English county; rather, it is a hundred (historical local jurisdiction) in northern Yorkshire. However, due to jurisdictional difficulties, multiple collections list Allertonshire as a part of Durham. Allertonshire is listed here independently to sidestep this confusion.
