On his marriage cert- 21st Oct 1866 to Winnifred, Charles Palmer lists his father as Benjamin Palmer, Labourer. So the above 1851 census is correct.

(Winnifred's father was Robert Rycroft, Carpenter)

Charles Palmer
christening: 04 Oct 1840 FAREHAM,HAMPSHIRE,ENGLAND

There is an 1841 census for this family- but extremely faded.

If you obtain the marriage cert, you'll find out if he knew his father's details.................those would help your search
