"STRUMPSHAW is a well-built, but dispersed village, on an eminence, 8½ miles E. by S. of Norwich, comprising within its parish 412 inhabitants, and about 1200 acres, belonging to a number of freeholders and some copyholders; the latter are subject to arbitrary fines, payable to the heirs of the late E. Walpole, Esq., as lords of the manor. The ancient lords were the Dan-Martins and the Bardolphs. The Church (St. Peter,) was new pewed and covered with blue slate, in 1819, at the cost of £150. The living is a rectory, valued in the King's Book at £8, and in 1831 at £486, with that of Bradestone annexed to it, in the patronage and incumbency of the Rev. E.S. Whitbread, M.A., who has a commodious residence, and 64A. of glebe. The tithes of Strumpshaw were commuted in 1844, for £370 per annum. The windmill, in this parish, is supposed to stand on the highest hill in Norfolk, " [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.
