"THRIGBY is a hamlet and parish, 7 miles N.W. of Yarmouth, containing only 53 souls, and 575 acres of land, of which 224A. 3R. 5P. belong to the poor of Yarmouth, by the bequest of the Rev. Edw. Warnes, in 1700; and the remainder is the property of Thos. Browne, Esq., the lord of the manor, and patron of the rectory, who resides at the HALL, which he enlarged and beautified about 10 years ago. The Church (St. Mary) is an ancient structure, and rectory, valued in the King's Book at £6, is enjoyed by the Rev. J. Morton, L.L.B., of Caistor [see note below]. The tithes have been commuted for £212. 13s. per annum." [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.
