To the left and below are the population figures for Winteringham from the National Census.  The Census has been taken every 10 years, with the exception of 1941.

Winteringham’s nineteenth century ‘high’ was in 1861 when there were 858 people in the village.  This was followed by a steady loss of population over the ensuing thirty years.  Without following the individual families, we can only surmise why this occurred, but it was a time of general decline in agriculture, and the nearby steel industry in Scunthorpe was hungry for workers - at a time when daily transport to work over such distances was unheard of unless there was an adequate railway connection.

Since 1901, the village’s population has continually increased - though it took a hundred years for it to match its nineteenth century peak!

We have the complete Winteringham Census for the years 1841, 1851, 1861 1891, and 1901.  Please feel free to ask us to look up information on them.  Email us your queries using the ‘Contact Us’ button at the bottom of the page.

The village’s human population, is not the only census taken.  Each year, a census is carried out by DEFRA into all the facts and figures concerning farming.  In recent times, these have only been available at ‘Ward’ level - which includes several parishes.  In former years, figures were produced at parish level, and we have the figures for one year in the mid-1960s.  Click here to view.

Note:  There was no census in 1941
