"LEZIATE is a small decayed parish, on the north side of the turnpike, 4 miles E. of Lynn, containing a few scattered houses, 172 inhabitants, and 1,345 acres of sandy land, including a warren, and a common of 104A. The soil has been much improved during the last ten years. A great part of it is in Mrs. Sharrack's manor of Well Hall; but A. Hamond, Esq. has about 200 acres; and Mr. Ephraim Howes belongs to Holt House, with 500 acres, distant nearly two miles south of Leziate, in the vale, opposite Middleton tower. Of the CHURCH at Leziate, nothing remains but the foundation, the benefice having been long consolidated with Ashwicken." [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.
