William Terry is located on page 2 in 1841 living at Lord's Lands, Burstow, Surrey but can not locate page one

He is on his own on page 2 so wondering if there is anyone else on page 3 as well

"England and Wales Census, 1841," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MQKV-91H : 12 December 2017), William Terry, Burstow, Surrey, England; from "1841 England, Scotland and Wales census," database and images, findmypast (http://www.findmypast.com : n.d.); citing PRO HO 107, The National Archives, Kew, Surrey.

Here is page 1 (this is the image):

"England and Wales Census, 1841," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS3H-2Z5J?cc=1493745&wc=Q38T-SP5%3A1588762232%2C1588763258 : 29 October 2015), Surrey > Burstow > image 1 of 23; from "1841 England, Scotland and Wales census," database and images, findmypast(http://www.findmypast.com : n.d.); citing PRO HO 107, The National Archives, Kew, Surrey.

And here is the last person on Page 2:

"England and Wales Census, 1841," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MQKV-Q7S : 12 December 2017), Richd Brown, Burstow, Surrey, England; from "1841 England, Scotland and Wales census," database and images, findmypast(http://www.findmypast.com : n.d.); citing PRO HO 107, The National Archives, Kew, Surrey.

In that case, the William in Burstow in 1841 might not be the right one.  Farmers stayed with the land (mostly), so the 1841 William in Burstow is likely to be the 1851 William.  Maybe you need to look again for another 1841 William.  How about this one in St Lukes, Middlesex, where all the children were born?

"England and Wales Census, 1841," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MQJS-4W3 : 13 December 2017), William Terry in household of George Marshell, St Luke Chelsea, Middlesex, England; from "1841 England, Scotland and Wales census," database and images, findmypast (http://www.findmypast.com : n.d.); citing PRO HO 107, The National Archives, Kew, Surrey.

looks interesting Debs thank you

I do try and find other children when there is a big gap between siblings sometimes which sometimes helps
Also, there are several William Terrys who died between 1861 and 1871 in Gravesend, Kent which seems a far more likely death place than Surrey.
On the last page, number 17 on the census page itself  (but number 10 using the Ancestry system of counting 2 pages at once),  there is a Joseph Terry, age 15.  He is a Manservant living at "Old Hall", Burstow. He has a "Y" for born in county.

Ancestry's Page 1 is as Ros suggests - the blurb about the enumerator and  the district and which parts of the parish of Burstow it covers. Page 1 of the census ( page 2 in Ancestry ) is again,  as Ros says, the page opposite the one with William and THomas

I couldn't see any other Terrys.  Only William, Thomas, and Joseph.
Joe,

The Terrys she's researching never lived in Burstow as far as I can determine. Birth, census, and death records all indicate they lived and died in Middlesex/Kent.
Ah Ok. Thanks Deb. Stephanie's question was about the 1841 Burstow census so I just looked at that. Now I see it has probably been rejected.
A few of the Terrys did move to surrey but yes they were mainly in London/Middlesex area so should I look again or have I got the right one
Personally, I think you need to look again.  The East India Terry doesn't look too promising, I'm afraid.

Thank you Ros and this is him in 1851 occupation was Late Of H E I C Service

"England and Wales Census, 1851," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SGLM-CRP : 8 November 2017), William Terry, Milton, Kent, England; citing Milton, Kent, England, p. 53, from "1851 England, Scotland and Wales census," database and images, findmypast (http://www.findmypast.com : n.d.); citing PRO HO 107, The National Archives of the UK, Kew, Surrey.

So for now I shall remove the 1841 census and see what else I can find for him as can not find his wife either at the moment
