1871 census, reference RG10, Piece 5594, Folio 72, Page 6
Cwmblowen, Pilleth, Presteigne

Prosser, Thomas  Head  M  36  Labourer  b Radnorshire
Prosser, Mary  Wife  F  33  b Llangunllo
Prosser, Thomas  Son  M  13  b Knighton
Prosser, William  Son  M  10  b Knighton
Prosser, David  Son  M  3  b Pilleth
Prosser, Margaret  Daughter  F  8  b Knighton
Prosser, Anne  Daughter  F  5  b Pilleth

1861 census - reference RG09, 4233, 36, 24
Cwm, Knighton

Prosser, Thos  Head  M  72(?!)  Labourer  b Clun
Prosser, Mary  Wife  F  92(?!)  b Llangunllo

James, Robt  Lodger  M  33  Labourer  b Knighton
James, Elizabeth  Lodgers Wife  F  72(?)  b Leintwardine

Ages are as written on the original, but otherwise, everything fits!
Can't see a 92 year old having a 1 year old son?!  ;D

And this likes like the elder Thomas in 1851:
Reference HO107, 2491, 151, 26
The Poles Cottage, Llanstephan, Clyro

Prosser, John  Head  M  80  Carpenter  b Llowes

I use FindMyPast for census information.
FreeBMD for Births, Marriages & Deaths.

Occasionally Ancestry or GenesReunited, if I am unsure of a result.
Sometimes UKBMD - it has many county daughter sites.

Plus quite a few other bits 'n bobs.
