Population: 1759, 1775, 1790, 1801 and 1811

Mattishall is one of the few places in the county for which a population census from before 1801 survives.

These population census come from a Norfolk Record Office document [with the reference PD 703/3 and on microform MF/RO 633/5] and contain only statistics ie. no names (apart from two ministers one of whom was dissenting). They appear at the end of the 1812 Burials volume.
