No, there won't be. The 1841 will only tell you whether he was born
in the county or not. If he wasn't you won't know which county he was
born in unless you can find him on the 1851 census. It will tell you
if he was F (Foreign), I (Irish) or S (Scottish) but nothing more precise.

The 1841 census is available on www.findmypast.com, www.ancestry.co.uk
and www.1901cenus.nationalarchives.go.uk
