Norfolk: Reepham with Kerdiston

Population in 1651, 1801, 1811, 1821 and 1831

Reepham with Kerdiston is one of the few places in the county for which population figures from before 1801 survive.

This information is extracted from the Baptism Register for Reepham with Kerdiston and comes after the 1801 and 1812 baptism pages. It can be found in Norfolk Record Office document on a film [with the reference MF/RO 512/1]. It contains only statistics for Reepham with Kerdiston but includes names for the part known as Kerdiston which are on a separate page.
