In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Norbiton like this:
Norbiton, eccl. dist. (ry. sta. Norbiton and Kingston Hill), Kingston upon Thames par., Surrey, in E. suburbs of Kingston upon Thames, pop. 5734; P.O., T.O.
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Norbiton has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Kingston upon Thames. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Norbiton and units named after it.
