  The government report which published the figures of the 1851 census said that the population had increased then because of the extension of woollen manufacture. Similarly the report for 1871 said the population of the parish had increased due to an extension in lead mining.
What else was happening in the area in the 1860s which might have caused the population to rise?
Why do think the population fell so quickly towards the end of Queen Victoria's reign?
