Lodsworth’s population

Lodsworth population graph

The figures above and below are for the whole parish. The parish boundary altered in the 1870s, when a detached part of Selham with 12 properties and 57 inhabitants was transferred into the parish: the effect can be seen in the sharp increase in the 1881 Census. In a second boundary change in 1916, part of North Ambersham was similarly incorporated, but this was hidden by the falling population at the time.
