Visit this Gloucestershire site, Cherington Church and Monuments Compiled by Graham Thomas. He includes Bigland recorded gravestones for Trappe, Rodway/Radway, Cox, Driver

'Gloucester Village Populations' by Alicia C Percival, 1972, has for Cherington, Communicants in 1551 - 70, in 1603 - 100, in 1676 - 131, and in 1650 there are 30 families. If each house has an average of 2 adults, the Hearth figures of 41 houses appear to give a lower tally than Percival reports

B=E 178 247/14, for 1671, C=E 178 247/13, for 1672
89 entries transcribed, which appear to belong to 61 individuals with 41 houses.
Comments refer to '14 houses have 31 hearths' and '27 (houses) are poor'. This suggests the village contained about 41 houses. So 20 gain a new 'Master or Mistress' during the year between the two lists.
James Stevens (6 hearths, 1671) seems to be replaced by Michael Stevens (6 hearths, 1672)
Thomas Cooke (3 hearths, 1671) seems to be replaced by John Cove (3 hearths, 1672)
Joseph Trappe, the Vicar, gets an extra hearth
The numbers are only a counting aid.
