Plastin(e) family, Brentford: 2 entries in 1851 census?

Surnames: Plastin(e)
Can anyone offer an explanation as to why John and Rosina Plastin (later spelling is Plastine) have two entries in the 1851 census for Brentford (vol.1b)? The family details are identical, but they are recorded at household schedule nos. 35 and 143. There is no address given for either, although on a page before no. 143, someone has written in "Catherine Wheel Yard?" The enumeration district description in the front of the book says "All that part of the Township of New Brentford which lies to the south of the High Road from Mr Grainger's house inclusive to the Church, with the Yards and Alleys between these places" and again someone has added, in a different hand "Including Catherine Wheel Yard?". I know that a daughter of the family was born in Catherine Wheel Yard. John and Rosina are my 3g-grandparents.

I'd be grateful for any advice.

Dear ELLinSpain,

My sincere apologies: I did not reply to your helpful suggestion in answer to my question back in March. I did email the National Archives and their answer was that this was probably due simply to a careless enumerator who did not number the schedules properly! It seems that although they were paid, they were not well paid and so were not very motivated.

Thanks again.

Paul
