If you tell us who it is and where they can be found in 1841 we can compare it with other entries on the adjoining pages

Looks more like "Asst"  (assistant)

Can you post a link to the census page or tell us where to find it?

I would opt for Asst (Assistant) just based on what we can see in this clip. 
What is the occupation of the person/people above? Is it something that you would expect to have an assistant?
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex
