Norfolk: Bodham

Census: 1768

Bodham is one of the few places in the county for which a census before 1841 containing names survives.

This 1768 Norfolk Record Office document [with the reference PD 334/24 and MF 969/4] is on three pages. This census forms part of a Baconsthorpe Parish document hence its PD 334 reference as opposed to the normal PD 347 references for Bodham.
