1841 and 1851 Censuses
"The Return for Horsham St. Faiths includes 137 persons in 1841, and 123 in 1851, in the St. Faiths Union Workhouse. Horsham St. Faiths and Newton St. Faiths are consolidated. The decrease of population in these Parishes, since 1841, is ascribed to the removal of weavers and their families to Norwich, and to emigration."
1861 Census
"ST. FAITHS. The decrease of population in most of the parishes comprised in the District of St. Faiths is attributed to the migration of labourers and their families to the manufacturing districts."
1901 Census
