You say you are looking for ancestors as well as relatives in Aus. You haven 't had much re his family in the UK to date.
I can give you some census info, which does not show him, but is I am sure of his family.

Hi, the only info I can see is;

1841 Colby Gate Lane Ruddington
Charlotte KEMPSON

Not knowing this Charlotte's age could be either Henry snr's mother (b.abt.1769) or sister. (b. ?? )
