Population of England increase from 1.1M in 1066 to over 49M in 2001. Notes: 1. Norman invasion 2. Magna Carta 3. Black Death 4. End of Tudor period 5. First census 6. Regular censuses 7. Second World War

Due to the lack of authoritative contemporary sources, estimates of the population of England for dates prior to the first census in 1801 vary considerably. It has been suggested that even the 1801 census may have left up to 250,000 people uncounted.
