Development of Norwich Norwich in population grew from 10,000 people in 1550 to over 30,000 in 1650. This was largely due to the cloth trade.
20 most populous towns The most populated towns in 1625 were the same in 1688. Most towns were located near rivers or coasts which allowed swift circulation of goods.
