Further to this potentially endless topic, I must report that Wm. H. Carter was living at 4 South St., Cliffe, Lewes, Sussex, in 1871, with his wife and the beginnings of his family. In 1891 they are still there, though by now there are 6 offspring aged from 20 to 6. There is no sign of any of them OR of the address in 1881. (Numbers 2,3,5,6 South St. are in all three censuses.)
On the other hand, Ed. Broadhurst and his family occur twice at the same address in 1881 (3,Gloster Road, Lambeth), the second time with several neighbours. And George Netherclift, aged 15, occurs at 2 different addresses: 436, Coldharbour Lane, Lambeth and (spelled Nethercliffe, but clearly the same person) at 2 Townsend St., Southwark.
I suspect the enumerator was responsible for the first, possibly (or transcriber) for the second, but the third was a mistake (or worse) by the head of Household.
