Lincolnshire Villages Population Statistics Early 1800s

The following table shows the populations of some Lincolnshire villages in 1801, 1811 and 1821.

Skegness would have been a little fishing village back then, it’s settlement remaining almost constant over the two decades. The picture shows something of what Skegness would have looked like at that time – the image is from an 1826 engraving.

Burgh le Marsh was the largest settlement in 1801, rising steadily over the twenty years. But look at Frisney – by far it was had the largest population count in 1821, having almost doubled over the time period. A possible reason for this was the expanding agriculture.
