Llandinam population graph

 
  The actual recorded figures for the population of the parish were:-  
  In the year 1841 - 1732 people
In the year 1851 - 1585
In the year 1861 - 1574
In the year 1871 - 1640
In the year 1881 - 1541
In the year 1891 - 1325
In the year 1901 - 1209
 
  The government report which published the figures of the 1841 census said that the population had declined then because of emigration. If local people could not get work locally they would be forced to move away. You can see the trend continued until 1871 when the population rose again.
What was happening in the area in the 1860s which might have caused the population to rise?
