Ricky, as I posted above, all Cornish 1841 to 1901 census is free online, in the link I gave. This could be James in 1851:
James Boddy,Servnt,,16,,Farm Servant,Breage Cornwall
(I just put James Boddy Breage in google)

The OPC for Breage lives in New Zealand -

Hi Ricky and welcome to the Community boards.

It may be worthy putting the names you are researching into the Search Trees box above to see if anyone on this site has them in their tree.

If you find a connection, you can contact the tree owners.

Regards. Cx.

If it is Cornish information you would like, all Cornish census 1841 to 1901 is online free and there are helpful OPC (online parish clerks) for Cornwall.
