The published report which gave these census figures said that the population of Llanwrin parish had gone down in 1851 because of emigration. The graph above shows us that the overall population trend continued downward, despite the slight rise in 1871.

By the end of Queen Victoria's reign the population of this country parish had fallen to just 559 people.
Why do think this was?
