"CARLTON-RODE, a large scattered village, 2 miles E.N.E. of New Buckenham, has in its parish 938 souls, and 2573 acres of land, the greater part of which belongs to Sir Robert J. Buxton, Bart., (now a minor,) but part of the parish is in Forncett and Tibbenham manors. In the winter of 1844, a very interesting collection of British instruments or tools was discovered here in digging a ditch across a pasture field, on the farm occupied by the Rev. T. P. Slapp, of Old Buckenham, in whose possession they have been placed. . . . The Church (All Saints,) was repaired in 1717, and has a good organ, lately given by Mrs. Bevan. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the King's Book at £16, and now having a yearly rent of £922. 12s. 6d.. awarded in 1839 in lieu of tithes. Sir R.J. Buxton, Bart., is patron, and the Rev. F.S. Bevan incumbent. Here is a Baptist chapel." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Ann Duncan]

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.
