"PUDDING NORTON, 1½ mile S. of Fakenham, has in its parish only 25 souls, and 755 acres of land, belonging to A.W. Biddulph, Esq., the patron of the rectory, valued in the King's Book at £6, and now a sinecure, enjoyed by the Rev. W.W. Wilcocks, of Fakenham. The Church (St. Margaret,) was dilapidated many years ago, but part of the tower still remains."

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.
