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.

1841 and 1851 Censuses
"Stanninghall was formerly a Parish, but is now united to Horstead, to which it pays church-rates, although stated to belong ecclesiastically to Frettenham Parish."
1851 Census
"About 40 persons from Horstead have lately emigrated to the colonies."
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."
