"FRAMINGHAM-PIGOT, a small scattered village, 4½ miles S.E. by S. of Norwich, has in its parish 289 souls, and 565A. of land, owned by many freeholders; but the Earl of Rosebery is lord of the manor, which was given by Roger Bigod, Earl of Norfolk, to the Pigot, or Picot family. The CHURCH (St. Andrew,) is a small, humble fabric, with a tower. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the King's Book at £3. 6s. 8d. The Bishop of Norwich is patron, and the Rev. Thos. Johnson Ormerod, M.A., is the incumbent, and is now building a neat Rectory House." [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.
