Chetwood was the broad woodland that lay to the north and east of the Bree-hill. The village of Archet was built among the trees near its edge.[1]

Etymology

Chet is a British word meaning "Forest, wood", related to Celtic. The effect of a compound name from Celtic and English words of the same meaning are seen in Brill, Oxfordshire (bree + hill; bree meaning "hill").[2]

There is a Cheetwood in Lancashire and a Chetwode in Buckinghamshire.
