1841 Census request - North Yorkshire


I'd be grateful if anyone can help me with tracing the following people in the 1841 census:

John Hansel(l), bc1816 Ormesby, Yorks
Jane Hansel(l), bc1819 Crathorne, Yorks
Thomas Hansel(l) bc1841 ??

Jane's maiden name was Humble (sometimes recorded as Hummel) - are there any Humble/Hummel families in Crathorne at this time?

Thanks in anticipation.

No luck with census, but there are 27 'Humble' baptisms in Crathorne between 1813 & 1875.
8 Baptisms between 1731 & 1875
One Baptism at St Mary's RC Church, Crathorne : Hannah Humble 30th May 1839, parents Wm & Hannah Humble.

The following Marriages:
Richard Humble to Elizabeth Newton 5/5/1777 Crathorne
Richard Humble to Jane Taylor 3/9/1803, Crathorne
Elizabeth Humble to Thomas Routledge 5/11/1803, Crathorne
Meryll Humble to William Blenkey 12/5/1810
William Humble to Dorothy Carling 10/6/1816
