In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Fornham like this:
FORNHAM, a sub-district in Thingoe district, Suffolk. It contains the three Fornham parishes, sixteen other parishes, and an extra-parochial tract. Acres, 32, 369. Pop., 5, 789. Houses, 1, 168.
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 Fornham has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of St Edmundsbury. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Fornham and units named after it.
