I had a pretty good look.....
1. Being as you found him on the 1841, and its states born in county, need
not mean he was born Barking.....
2. being a fisherman, likely at that time of the year he might have been at
sea, fishing. Alot of people got missed that way in the earlier censuses.
You found him on the 1841 primarily because he was in port at the time.
3. Have you found him in later censuses? 1871, 1881, 1891 with Eliza,
because drowning is a distinct possibility given his trade. I have waterman
and quite a few drowned. Just because they work on water, does not mean they
Just a few thoughts.
Let the list know that you have him in "whatever" censuses next time and
that limits the possibilities and the scenarios.
