PRESENT STATE of POPULATION in the PARISHES treated of in the Second and Third Volumes.

The inhabitants have been numbered in the parishes of Hayes, Heston, Isleworth, Teddington, Twickenham, and Twyford. A person was employed to number those of Hackney, but met with such difficulties that he gave up the talk when it was too late to procure any other to undertake it. The result of his inquiry, as far as it was carried in to execution, shewed that in 475 houses, being the whole of Church-street and part of Marestreet, there were 2521 inhabitants. The whole number of houses (including the 475 at Hackney) is 2339, the inhabitants 12995. The proportion is not so high as appeared by the survey made of some parishes in Surrey, being little more than 5½ to a house; allowing for empty houses, I think 5½ will be a fair calculation. In the following table they are estimated in that proportion, excepting in those parishes in which the actual number is given:
