We have been asked several times about the rising Canvey population so I have produced a chart showing the increasing figures from 1851-2001.
The charts shows the totals in hundreds. The first chart does not show very clearly the earlier figures because the first line is for 10,000 so I have put on two further charts from 1851-1911 and 1911-2001.
The first line across is 10,000 in 1951 the population was 11,258.
The first line across is 100 in 1861 the population was 96.
The first line across is 5,000 in 1939 the population was 6248.
