1801          454

1811           445

1821           583

1831           620

1841           640

1851           727

1871           875

1881           950

1891           887

1901           928

(Approximately doubled but with a decline at the end of the century)

By comparison Raunds' population went from 890 in 1801 to 3,811 in 1901 (Approximately a fourfold increase). It may be that some of decline in Ringstead from 1881 due to a movement to Raunds and other larger town due to the growth of larger factories in the shoemaking industry, but this yet to be proved.

Reference

These figures are from Shoemakers in Northamptonshire 1762 - 1911; A Statistical Survey. Hatley, Victor A. and Rajczonek, Joseph. (Northampton Historical Series No 6 1971) but I will try to enter the original sources later
