There are a total of 296 people in 62 households. This would appear to be about half of the parish. The 1841 Census shows a total of 556 people in 119 houses, and it divides the parish into two sections. North of the high road from Mattishall to Norwich there were 267 residents inhabiting 55 houses. South of the high road there were 289 residents inhabiting 64 houses.

The Census shows the head of each household, the number of inhabitants in the household (in round brackets), how many could read [in square brackets], and the number of Bibles and Testaments in the household.

It was apparently taken to find out how many residents were literate and how many households had a Bible or Testament.
