"HAVERINGLAND, 9 miles N.W. by N. of Norwich, and 3½ miles S.E. of Reepham, is a dispersed village and parish, with 160 inhabitants, and about 2000 acres of land, belonging to Edward Fellowes, Esq., M.P., who has lately erected a splendid new HALL, in the Grecian style, on the eastern side of the extensive and well-wooded Park, about half a mile from the old Hall, which had long been the seat of his family. This elegant mansion is still undergoing improvements, and when finished will be one of the finest seats in Norfolk. The pleasure grounds are beautifully laid out, and watered by a fine lake. The spirited owner is lord of the manor, impropriator, and patron of the CHURCH, which is dedicated to St. Peter, and formerly had a chancel, of which some fragments still remain. It has a round tower, a nave, and a north aisle, the latter of which was built by Sir Roger Bilney. The perpetual curacy, augmented with £400 of Queen Anne's bounty, in 1755 and 1809, and valued in 1831 at £63, is enjoyed by the Rev. C. Wood."

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
"ST. FAITHS. The decrease of population in most of the parishes comprised in the District of St. Faiths is attributed to the migration of labourers and their families to the manufacturing districts."
