Norfolk: Weasenham St Peter

Population: 1821 and 1831

These 1821 and 1831 Norfolk Record Office documents [with the reference PD 127/86 and MF/X/280/19] are on consecutive pages on the Microform. It is a handwritten copy of the information which was sent to the Government. One or two lines are differently worded and some are missing from the 1831 copy presumably because the answers were zero eg. Unihabited houses.
