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 Great Cressingham, Holme-Hale, and Igborough is attributed to labourers having left, owing to the lowness of wages, &c."
