SPARROW in Portsea/Southsea, Portsmouth

Hi everyone,
I have a William Charles SPARROW born c1825 Southsea Hampshire, son of Charles SPARROW (No details known as yet) & UNKNOWN
Another researcher has James SPARROW born 1830 Portsea Hampshire, son of Charles SPARROW and Ann UNKNOWN
Distance Southsea to Portsea = 1.6 miles!
As my William joined the Royal Marines could be the reason I cannot find him on the 1841 census .... either that or I'm blind!
I think the Charles SPARROW is one and the same but cannot prove it.
Other than visit the Hampshire Archives and try and find baptisms etc .... Anyone got any ideas to help me on this?

Best Wishes,
