    The only Henry Hobbs in Newport in the 1841 Census is:

    First Name Last Name Age Year Of Birth Occupation Born in Monmouthshire
    HENRY HOBBS 20 1821 “Taylor” No
    MARY HOBBS 20 1821 Yes
    HENRY HOBBS 0 1841 Yes

    There is a marriage record that I found for Henry Hobbs and Marianne Davis in 1839 in Newport.

    In 1851 they are still in Newport:
    Name Age Occupation
    Henry Hobbs 33 Sawyer
    Mary Hobbs 31
    Henry Hobbs 12
    George Hobbs 8
    Alfred Hobbs 1

    Sawyer is someone who cuts wood.

    1861 Newport:
    Name Age Occupation
    Henry Hobbs 39 Sawyer
    Mary Hobbs 40
    Henry Hobbs 21
    George Hobbs 18
    Alfred Hobbs 11
    David Hobbs 7
    William Hobbs 6
    Thomas Hobbs 3
    Eliza Hobbs 2

    1871 Newport
    Name Age Occupation / Relationship

    Henry Hobbs married Marianne Davis at Christ Church in the Caerleon area of Newport, Monmouthshire on 4 March 1839 (NEWPORT vol 26, page 96, or see the parish register on FindMyPast). Marianne's father is John Davis, a Labourer.

    They're still alive and well in 1891, living at 13 Lower Cross Street, St Woolos, Newport:
    Henry HOBBS - Head-M-70 - Bridgewater, Somerset - English only
    Mary HOBBS - Wife-M-60 (!) - Newport, Mon - English only

    These are probably their death registrations:
    Apr-May-Jun 1893: HOBBS Henry 69 Newport, Monmouthshire 11a 127
    Oct-Nov-Dec 1895: HOBBS Mary Ann 72 Newport, Monmouthshire 11a 105 (her true age given in death!)
