  Most people in this small rural parish were farmers, farm labourers or farm servants but there were also craftsmen and tradesmen. (See pages on Earning a Living).
Notice that the population rose quite steeply around 1860 but then fell afterwards.
 
  Compare this graph with those of other smaller rural parishes in the area like Pilleth or Stanage.
