TABLE OF POPULATION 1801 to 1951

The population table printed below follows the pattern of that published in the History of Leicestershire. (fn. 1) It shows the population of every area mentioned as a parish or as a distinct part of a parish for civil administrative purposes in any Census Report between 1801 and 1951, and that of the more important of the other local government areas for which totals have been struck. (fn. 2) The administrative areas chosen for inclusion are ancient counties (1801–1901) and administrative counties (1891– 1951), hundreds (1801–81), urban and rural districts (1881–1951), boroughs (1801–41) and municipal boroughs (1851–1951), ancient parishes (1801–71), townships, chapelries, &c. (1801–71), and civil parishes (1881–1951). The population is always expressed for the area as constituted at the date of the census concerned, except in certain cases where, however, the fact is always noted. The choice of these areas, and the dates at which each is given, has depended upon a series of alterations made in the 19th century in the conduct and areas of local government. (fn. 3)

Counties. The boundaries of the ancient county (fn. 4) were altered in 1844, (fn. 5) when detached parts of Shinfield ancient parish (A.P)., Swallowfield A.P., and Wokingham A.P., together with the liberty of Broad Hinton, were transferred from Wiltshire to Berkshire, and a detached part of Inglesham was transferred from Berkshire to Wiltshire. The whole of Kingswood A.P. and Poulton A.P. were transferred to Gloucestershire, in which they were locally situated, and the whole of Minety A.P. was transferred from Gloucestershire to Wiltshire. These changes had already been made for parliamentary purposes in 1832. Under the Divided Parishes Acts, 1876–82, changes were made in parish boundaries as a result of which the Wiltshire part of Coleshill civil parish (C.P.) was transferred to Inglesham C.P. in 1881, and the Hampshire part of West Dean C.P. was transferred to West Tytherley C.P. (Hants) in 1883, so that fewer parishes were divided by the county boundary. The Local Government Act of 1888 created administrative counties: in the case of Wiltshire, the administrative county was identical with the ancient county until further adjustments of the administrative county boundaries were made under the Local Government Act of 1894. This Act made possible changes in county boundaries to conform with those of civil parishes and rural districts. Wiltshire gained parts of Maiden Bradley and Stourton from Somerset, but lost the parishes of East Bramshaw, Martin, Melchet Park, Plaitford, South Damerham, Toyd Farm with Allenford, West Wellow, and Whitsbury to Hampshire. The Berkshire part of Chilton Foliat C.P. was transferred to Hungerford C.P. Further changes in the county boundaries were made by three local Acts. In 1895 (fn. 6) the part of Hungerford C.P. in Wiltshire was transferred to Berkshire and the part of Shalbourne C.P. in Berkshire was transferred to Wiltshire. The following year (fn. 7) the whole of Kilmington C.P. was transferred from Somerset to Wiltshire, and Kemble C.P., Poole Keynes C.P., and Somerford Keynes C.P. (in which was included Shorncote A.P.) were transferred from Wiltshire to Gloucestershire. (fn. 8) Finally, Wiltshire was affected by changes made under the Local Government Act of 1929, as a result of which Ashley C.P. and Long Newnton C.P. were transferred to Gloucestershire in 1930.

Hundreds were included in all the Census Reports until 1881. The constituent parishes of hundreds in 1831 are shown on pp. 326–30 with notes to show differences 1801–21 and 1841. From 1851 to 1881 the Census Reports give the total population of the hundreds but do not show their constituent parishes.

Urban and rural districts. These appeared first as urban and rural sanitary districts under the Public Health Act of 1872. These districts were based upon the poor law unions: the rural sanitary districts comprised the remainder of the unions after the urban sanitary districts had been taken out. (fn. 9) In the case of Devizes, Marlborough, and Salisbury, the urban sanitary district was coextensive with the municipal borough, but although the urban sanitary districts of Calne and Chippenham were administered by the existing town councils, they comprised a larger area than the municipal boroughs of Calne and Chippenham. In 1889, however, the boundaries of these two municipal boroughs were enlarged to correspond with those of the urban sanitary districts. The functions of a sanitary authority became an automatic part of all town councils' responsibilities, and the term 'urban sanitary district' became redundant as far as the municipal boroughs were concerned. The Local Government Act of 1894 changed the rural sanitary districts, and those urban sanitary districts which were not in municipal boroughs, into rural and urban districts respectively. This Act and the Local Government Act of 1929 authorized changes in the number and areas of the districts.

The constituent civil parishes of urban districts are grouped in the population table under the urban districts, since these form compact and administratively unified areas: in many cases the civil parishes have been united to form one parish coextensive with the urban district. Where changes in boundaries of urban districts are mentioned in the Census Reports, they have been shown in the notes to the population table. Where the date of the district's formation is not mentioned, it may be assumed to have been formed under the Act of 1872.

The constituent civil parishes of rural districts are shown on pp. 331–8, where a brief history of each district as an area is also given. Changes in the boundaries of rural districts have been so frequent and complex that it has not been possible to express them in the notes to the population table, and apparently large changes in the population of rural districts must be considered with caution. Since changes which involved the transference or amalgamation of whole parishes are shown in the list on pp. 331–8, reference to this list makes possible a rough comparison of population at different dates, but for exact comparison the figures and notes for each constituent parish should also be consulted.

Boroughs and municipal boroughs. The subdivision of boroughs into municipal and parliamentary was made necessary by the Reform Act of 1832, which took away parliamentary representation from some boroughs, created boroughs with parliamentary status, and altered the parliamentary limits of others. The Municipal Corporations Act of 1835 confirmed the position of five Wiltshire municipal boroughs but deprived the other ancient boroughs of their charters. Of the five municipal boroughs, Calne and Marlborough included the same area as the ancient boroughs; Devizes and Salisbury were larger than the ancient boroughs; and only Chippenham was smaller. Two of the boroughs deprived of their charters, Wilton and Malmesbury, were reincorporated in 1885 and 1886 respectively. It is possible for new municipal boroughs to be created, and Swindon was granted a charter of incorporation in 1899. No county boroughs lie in Wiltshire.

Parishes. The bulk of the figures in the population table relate to parishes or parts of parishes, and the alteration in the boundaries and status of parishes are the most important factors influencing the form of the table. (fn. 10) Where ancient parishes were subdivided into chapelries, hamlets, or townships with recognizable boundaries, their population was often given in the early Census Reports, though these areas were not regularly returned. The Census Report of 1841 was much the fullest in this respect.

An ancient parish divided between two or more hundreds is entered only once in the table, with the total population of all its parts together. The distribution of the parts, however, is shown in the table of hundreds (see pp. 326–30).

In 1871 areas which levied their own poor rates, whether ancient parishes or not, were renamed civil parishes, but the grouping under ancient parishes was retained in the Census Reports until 1881, although ancient parishes as such had no civil significance by then. For the purpose of this table it has been found best to make the change between 1871 and 1881. The Census Reports, hampered by the complicated administrative and historical background, make no clear division between the old and new systems, and this date is convenient since the urban and rural districts first appear in the 1881 Census Report, and the new grouping under urban districts can, where necessary, follow upon grouping under ancient parishes. The component parts of ancient parishes, there fore, are grouped in the table under the ancient parishes until 1871, while from 1881 each civil parish has a separate entry unless it was part of an urban district. Cross-references and notes make it possible to trace these changes in each case.

The boundaries of parishes have undergone changes at many times. In 1857 (fn. 11) extra-parochial places were made into parishes for poor-relief purposes, unless they were very small, in which case, if the owners and occupiers of two-thirds of the land consented, they were annexed to an adjoining parish. In 1868 (fn. 12) any extra-parochial place which had by chance evaded the provisions of this Act was joined to the civil parish with which it had the longest common boundary. The Divided Parishes Acts of 1876, 1879, and 1882 provided for the annexation of detached or nearly detached parts of civil parishes to one or more of the surrounding civil parishes. The Local Government Act of 1888 permitted the alteration of civil parish boundaries and the amalgamation of civil parishes by Local Government Board orders. Under the Local Government Act of 1894 a civil parish divided between two urban districts or between an urban and a rural district became two separate civil parishes. The overlapping of local government boundaries before this was so great that it has been found necessary to make duplicate entries in some cases to show the population of entire civil parishes as well as of their component parts in various districts.

Place-names. The spelling of place-names follows that in the Ordnance Survey maps. The names of obsolete areas are given in the form they took in their last occurrence under the relevant status in the Census Reports. Occasional variants are not mentioned unless they reflect boundary changes.

Census Reports. The population table is based almost solely upon the information given in the Census Reports. From 1801 to 1831 the returns were usually made by the parish overseers, more than one day was allowed for enumeration, and the army (including the militia), navy, seamen in registered shipping, and convicts in the hulks were omitted. From 1841 the conduct of the census passed to the General Register Office, the enumeration was more strictly completed on the fixed day, and members of the classes formerly excluded from the returns were included in the parishes in which they happened to pass the night of the census. The dates of the censuses were: (fn. 13)

The notes and commentary. Changes in boundaries and comments on extraordinary changes in administrative status are shown in the notes on each page of the table. These notes do not purport to supply a complete list of such changes: all changes recorded in the Census Reports are included in the notes, except those involving very small areas with no population, but the Census Reports do not apparently give particulars of every change. It is improbable, however, that any changes of importance are omitted.

The explanations in the Census Reports of the reasons for particular changes in population, excluding boundary changes, and the comments on the occupations or condition of persons have been formed into a separate commentary (see below, pp. 318–26), where their chronological arrangement makes it more possible to trace social and economic tendencies in the county as a whole. An asterisk (*) placed by the relevant figure in the table indicates the existence of such a note.

Acreages. The acreages of parishes, though included in population tables in earlier volumes of the Victoria County History, have been excluded from the present table. Acreages were first expressed in the Census Reports in 1831, when they were calculated on a system devised by John Rickman. Some were corrected in 1851 from information derived from Tithe Commission records and Ordnance Survey maps. (fn. 14) Later, at dates varying from one parish to another, these figures were again amended from information received from the Ordnance Survey Department. After 1881 changes in boundaries which made any important difference to areas were explained in the Census Reports and the explanations have been copied in the notes to this table. Small changes were apparently not always notified and the assessment of areas seems sometimes to have varied slightly. It would therefore be difficult to choose a date for which areas could be given with equal certainty for all parishes. To supply all the different assessments given in the Census Reports would add greatly to the complexity of the table.

COMMENTARY

The notes in the Census Reports which either explain changes in population not caused by boundary alterations, or comment upon the occupations or condition of the population, are listed below. The notes occur with varying frequency and seem to follow no particular plan. The presence of a note of this nature relating to any return is indicated in the Population Table by an asterisk.
