"BRAMERTON, a small village and parish, 4½ miles S.E. by E. of Norwich, has 229 inhabitants, and 728A. 3R. 34P. of land, belonging to several proprietors, and lying in the manors of the surrounding parishes. The Hall, which was the seat of the Corys from 1400 to the middle of last century, is now the seat and property of John Blake, Esq. The Church (St. Peter,) was rebuilt in 1462, and the living is a discharged rectory, valued in the King's Book at £6, in the gift of Robert Fellowes, Esq., and is now enjoyed by the Rev. Edward Blake, who has recently built a handsome new rectory-house, and has 22A. of glebe. The tithes have been commuted, and the present yearly value of the living is about £250."

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.
- 1861 Census
- "The increase of population in Bramerton parish is attributed to the migration of several families from Norwich."
