Help in finding Sampra in 1861 England Census

+1 vote
It is an unusual name (see Sampra-1).  I find references to names Henry, Alice, Mary and Harriet Sampra occurring in the England Census 1861.

I find a reference to an assisted immigrant fee to New Zealand for "Alice and others", and one only marriage record for Harriet in the country registry for Births Deaths and Marriages.  .

Can anyone find the England census or other data?  Any help appreciated.

I just found them in the 1861 census. It looks like the actual spelling is Lampra (sometimes Lamprey). There are a number of records for Lampra in Cornwall on FamilySearch. They were living in Camborne, Cornwall. Change the .ca to .com if necessary.

Thank you so much.  I had spent many hours banging my head against a tree.  Now the trunk is open and I shall sample from the sap with great relish!
Glad I could help. I've got some Cornish roots myself. In case you didn't know, a lot of the Cornwall records are available here :

and a really good index here:
