Population figures are difficult to compare, as no two sources extract data in the same way.
Nevertheless, Morham’s population level halved between 1931 and 1997.
The 1945 valuation roll confirms that most of the parish population that lived on the farms were involved in agriculture. Occupations listed include ploughman, tractorman, shepherd, cattleman, dairymaid, foreman, farm worker, farm servant, grieve, and orraman. There was also a domestic servant, a servant (male), and a farm servant listed. At Coldale and at Morham Loanhead, the valuation roll gives the occupations of both proprietors as rabbit trappers. Later, one of these, James Mclean, operated as a game-dealer as well, as did one of his grandsons, Derek. This was the same James McLean who had loaned money to build the village hall in 1929, who was a county councillor, and in whose memory the church gates were erected (1966).
