"SUSTEAD parish, 4 miles S.S.W. of Cromer, has 143 souls, and 483 acres of land, mostly belonging to W.H. Windham, Esq., lord of the manor, formerly held by the Damme family, who had a large mansion, near a rivulet, which abounds in trout. The CHURCH (St. Peter and St. Paul,) is a small edifice, with a round tower. The living is a perpetual curacy, certified at £16, and valued in 1831 at £34.

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.
