"WESTON, or Weston Longville, is a parish of scattered houses, from 4 to 6 miles S. of Reepham, and contains 411 inhabitants, and 2737 acres of rich loamy land, mostly the property of H.T. Custance, Esq., the lord of the manor, who resides at Weston House, a neat cemented mansion, . . . . The old hall, now a farm-house, was built by the Rokewoods, . . . The Church (All Saints) has a tower and five bells. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the King's Book at ￡8. 18s. 1d., and now having 46A. 23P. of glebe, and a yearly rent of ￡680, recently awarded in lieu of tithes. The patronage is in New College, Oxford, and the Rev. John Conyngham, B.A., is the incumbent. The Wesleyans have a small chapel here, built in 1839. The rector supports a small school, for poor children, and has lately erected a handsome Rectory House."

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.
