A hamlet is a settlement which is too small to be considered a town or village. As a general rule, hamlets are rural, and many of them arise around a specific site such as a mill or a large farm.
The word “hamlet” arose in English around the 1300s, borrowed from the Old French hamel, which means “village.” “Hamlet” is simply a diminutive of hamel, emphasizing the small size of a hamlet. Since hamlets are quite small, it is not uncommon for all of the property in a hamlet to be owned by the same person or company, as in the case of a farm or mill.
