Don't the birth certificates tell exactly where the two boys were born? That would give you a starting place. Obviously from the 1881 census they were in the district.

It will be difficult finding any records for years in between the censuses. Perhaps the parish records might have something especially as the boys are illegitimate. You'll need to find where they are archived.
