Subject: OSBORN, Edward, 1851

I'm been searching for years for the movements of Edward OSBORN, born 1813
at Hope, Malborough Parish, Devon.
I'm quite certain that he "went to sea" at an early age - probably as an
apprentice to his elder brother William, a master mariner. But I have
never found Edward anywhere, in all the censuses, etc., that I've scanned.
Edward is mentioned in his father's - also an Edward, yeoman of Hope and my
3xggf - Will of 1855, so I assume that the son was thought to be still
alive at that time?
Would/could anyone with access to an 1851 Census Index, please let me know
if Edward(born 1813) was somewhere in the county at that time? Perhaps
still a mariner, or maybe having "swallowed the anchor"!
Please ignore my 2xgf, also Edward OSBORN, who would have been 6yrs old and
living with his mother Elizabeth Mary( nee BALL )in Salcombe!
Thanks in anticipation,
