"STODY, in a narrow dale, 3 miles S. by W. of Holt, has in its parish 187 souls, and 1278 acres of land. The Dowager Lady Suffield owns most of the soil, and is lady of the manor, and patroness of the Church (St. Mary,) which is a rectory, valued in the King's Book at £6 13s. 4d., and in 1831, at £351, with that of Hunworth annexed to it, in the incumbency of the Rev. J.W. Flavell, A.M., of Holt. The glebe is 35A., and the tithes of Stody were commuted, in 1840, for £237 per annum. The common was enclosed in 1807, when 1A. 2R. was allotted for the use of the highways. " [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.
