Population study accross the decades

It is hard to know how many people there are with the family name around the world or even within Great Britain.

We estimate that there were about 170 individuals with the family name in 1840 living in England and Wales. By looking at the number of births, deaths, male marriages, female marriages and emigrants we believe the population of family members steadily increased up to end of 1920s when we estimate that there were around 577 family members. Since then the figures have levelled off with probably around 600 individuals as shown in the graph below.

Estimated population of family member in Britain per decadeNumber of family members on each census versus estimated population

Looking at the estimated population versus the number of individuals found on censuses it would appear to suggest that we have not found all the family members who are on the census or unknown individuals have emigrated.
