The actual recorded figures for the population of the parish were:-

 
In the year 1841 - 772 people
In the year 1851 - 1126
In the year 1861 - 1126
In the year 1871 - 1112
In the year 1881 - 982
In the year 1891 - 720
In the year 1901 - 581
 
  Although the population rose to a high point in the middle of Victoria's reign, by the end of it the population had dropped to a level below the figure for the beginning.
Why do you think there was this dramatic fall in population?
