cannot find place in 1861 census

Hi All
Just at the point of pulling my little remaining hair out!!!
I am trying to find in the 1861 census a place called Ruffords buildings in the 1851 census.
I finally found it in the 1871 census as Rufford's Building's( note apostrophes)
but I cannot think of any variation that will show it in the 1861 census.
I am ultimately looking for a John Sewell who was at no 4 Ruffords buildings in the 1851 census but has subsequently vanished as my relation, his daughetr amrtha was alive when she married in 1864(have cert) and he is not listed as dead I assume he was alive and well in 1861!

Any ideas, street lists for census are few and far between.
