Moulton St Mary
"MOULTON village is scattered on a pleasant acclivity, 9 miles W. of Yarmouth, and includes within its parish 235 inhabitants, and about 1000 acres of land. Lady Cath. Melville owns the whole, except 200 acres, and is lady of the manor, impropriator, and patroness of the Church (St Mary,) which is a vicarage, valued in the King's Books at £5. 6s. 3d., and in 1831 at £185. It has 12A. of glebe, and £200 of Queen Anne's Bounty, obtained in 1775. The Rev. George Burgess is the incumbent. The Church Land consists of 3½ acres, given by Henry Palmer in 1523. The Poor's Allotment, 9A. 2R. 22P., was awarded at the enclosure in 1803, and is now let for £20."

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.
