"BARFORD parish has a village of detached houses, 7 miles W. of Norwich, and contains 417 souls, and 1059 acres of land. Mr John Leeder is lord of the manor, but many others have estates here. The CHURCH (St. Botolph,) is a small edifice, with a square tower and three bells. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £4. 8s. 4d., was augmented, in 1732, with £20, given by the Rev. Jeremiah Revans, and £200 of Queen Anne's bounty. The Rev. Henry Franklin, of Norwich, is patron and incumbent, and has half of the rent of 30A. of glebe, the other moiety of which belongs to the Dean and Chapter of Norwich. The tithes were commuted, in 1839, for £360 per annum. The Wesleyans have a small chapel here."

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.
