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.

1861 Census
"The decrease of population in the parishes of Broome, Woodton, Bedingham, and Topcroft is attributed partly to emigration, and partly to the removal of young men, for more remunerative employment, to towns."
1901 Census
"Including Bedingham Green, Cobbler's Green, and Upgate Street."
