www.woburnratesbook.org.uk contains a searchable transcription database plus images of the Woburn rates Book. This contains rates assessments for every street address in Woburn for various years from 1802 to 1828 (so far transcribed 1802, 1806, 1807, 1808, 1809). It is searchable by occupier's or proprietor's name or by address. Page images can be browsed and downloaded.

This allows you to trace back beyond the 1841 census, in something which is almost census format, except that it has only the householder's name - not the names of any other members of the household. However, it was updated much more frequently than the 10-years interval between censuses.
