Population.

The number of persons in Devonshire, assessed in the year 1377, to a poll-tax, from which only mendicants and children under fourteen years of age were exempted (fn. 1) (including the religions of both sexes, who were taxed separately, and amounted to 1315,) was 46,950. This tax was levied immediately after a great plague, by which this county, and particularly the great towns of Exeter and Plymouth, had been much depopulated. (fn. 2)

It appears, that the decayed state of the Devonshire towns had attracted the attention of parliament in the reign of Henry VIII. An act passed, in 1540, for encouraging the re-building of houses in the towns of Plymouth, Plympton, Barnstaple, Tavistock, and Dartmouth; with certain towns in other counties therein expressed. The preamble of the act states, that in these towns many houses had fallen down and decayed; and at that time remained unre-edified, lying as desolate and void ground. The Magna Britannia of 1720, computes the number of houses in this county at 56,310, that of the inhabitants at 300,000. The total number of inhabited houses in Devonshire, according to the census of 1801, was 57,955; that of inhabitants, 343,001; in 1811, the number of houses was 62,318; that of inhabitants 383,308; in 1821, the number of houses was 73,982; that of inhabitants 438,760.

Footnotes

1 It seems doubtful whether the inhabitants of Exeter and Dartmouth, who were rated separately, and amounted together to 6903, were included in this number. With this addition the number would have been 53,853.
2 The register of Newenham abbey, (in the possession of Dr. Wavell,) records a great mortality about sixty years before this, in the time of Abbot Pupplisbury, occasioned by famine. "In cujus tempore bussellus frumenti pro 3s. 4d.; et aliq. pro 4s. vendebatur, et bussellus grossi salis pro 4s. 8d. fames nam erat valida, et inaudita; et mortalitas hominum sed præcipue pauperum; et magna mortalitas armentorum, maxima et inaudita videlicit boum, vaccarum et vitulorum, per multos annos durans." It is said, that 167 of the cattle belonging to the Abbey died during this mortality.
3 The great increase of population, in this and other counties, particularly in the great towns, within the last thirty years, is to be attributed in a great measure, to the immortal discovery of Dr. Jenner; and to the various great improvements of modern times in medical science; especially in the treatment of women in child-birth, and infants. See some very ingenious remarks on the late population returns for Plymouth, Plymouth-dock, &c., by George Harvey, M.D., printed on single sheets.
4 It is evident that there must have been some mistake in the return, or an error in the printed account.
5 Townstall was included in the returns of Dartmouth in 1821.
6 It is evident that there must have been a mistake in these numbers.
7 This parish, which contains only Sir Henry Carew's house, was included in the return of Comb in Teignhead in 1801 and in 1821.
8 It is evident that there must have been some mistake in the return of 1811.
9 The inhabitants of this parish, which contains only one house, were numbered with those of North Tawton.
10 A hamlet of Boyton in Cornwall.
11 Including the parishes of St. Andrew and Charles, with the tithings of Weston Peverell and Compton Giffard.
12 This parish was numbered with Axmouth.
13 Including the extra-parochial tithing of Highley St. Mary.
14 Townstall was included in the enumeration of Dartmouth in 1821.
