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 the parishes of Norton-Subcourse, Haddiscoe, Burgh St. Peter, Geldeston, Burgh-Apton, and Brooke is attributed to the migration of labourers and others to towns."
1901 Census
"Including Nogdam End, and Norton Street."
