Lord Berners is lord of the former, and G. S. Kett, Esq., of the latter. The CHURCH (St. Mary,) is a small fabric, …The rectory, valued in K.B. at £3. 13s. 9d., and in 1831 at £126, is in the patronage and incumbency of the Rev. Wm. Hobson, B.D. The glebe is 18A.; and the common was enclosed in 1813." [William White History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Mike Bristow]

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.
