"FRAMINGHAM-EARL, a small parish of dispersed dwellings, 4 miles S.E. by S. of Norwich, has only 100 inhabitants, and 611A. of land, belonging to several proprietors, the largest of whom is G.B.L. Knight, Esq., who has a neat mansion here, with a woody lawn; but the Earl of Rosebery is lord of the manor. Mr Knight's estate belonged to the late eminent Edward Rigby, M.D., who died in 1822, after practising as a surgeon in Norwich since 1769, and publishing several excellent medical works. The CHURCH (St. Andrew,) is a small edifice, with a round tower. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the King's Book at £3. 6s. 8d., and is consolidated with Bixley" [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]

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.
