1841 census look-up - MARTIN

Please could someone help me with tracing my great-great grandfather Thomas William MARTIN. Research to date indicates that he was born in Shoreditch circa 1795. On the 1851 census he appears at 13 George Street, Bethnal Green, occupation silk weaver, with his wife (?) Eliza.
Hi Annabel,

Thomas wife in 1851 is Anna. Cannot find a Thomas occ silk weaver in 1841 with a Anna unless he was widowed and remarried between 1841-1851.

Foud these 2 the 1st one maybe a possibilty.
