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.

"The decrease of population in Briningham and Bale (or Bathley) is attributed partly to the emigration of a number of persons about four years ago."
