"BRUNDALL, a small village, on a commanding eminence above the Yare, 5½ miles E. of Norwich, has in its parish 52 souls, and 525 acres. T.G. Tuck, Esq., is lord of the manor, and owner of most of the soil; but Mr. L.B. Foster has a neat mansion here. The Church (St. Lawrence,) is a rectory, valued in the King's Book at £4. 10s., and consolidated with Little Plumstead and Witton. The glebe here is 9A. 3R. 16P."

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.
