"BAGTHORPE parish, 9 miles W. by N. of Fakenham, and 16 miles N.E. by E. of Lynn, has only 78 inhabitants, and 750 acres, of which, 113 acres are plantations and covers. Geo. Wm. Chad, Esq., is owner of the soil, and lord of the manor, and resides at Mount Ida, a neat and well-built mansion, upon a conical eminence, surrounded by a lawn of 28 acres. He is youngest son of the late Sir George Chad, Bart., of Thursford, and only surviving brother to the present baronet. He was sometime envoy extraordinary, and minister plenipotentiary from the Court of Great Britain to that of Prussia, and previously to other Courts. He is patron of the CHURCH (St. Mary,) which is a rectory, valued in the King's Book at £5 10s., and is enjoyed by the Rev. Stephen Reed Cattley."

These figures are from the population tables which were produced after the 10-yearly national censuses. The "Families" heading includes families and single occupiers.
There may be more people living in detached parts of the parish (if there were any) and, if so, the number may or may not be included in the figures above. It is quite difficult to be sure from the population tables.
