The Chiltern Hundreds is what is known as a 'rotton borough'. It has no registered constituents, no legal land ownership within the defined area and was created by Parliament to stick troublemakers into until they knew what to do with them... people 'under suspicion' could be assigned there too - all goes back to the Reformation days. Another one was Gatton near Reigate in Surrey,

 

(I did parliamentary history as a project at school in the dim and distant 70's.... still remember huge amounts of it!)

 

That's where 1st crud are based isn't it :D
