1891 census

I must be doing something wrong, when I go onto the 1891 census and type in OWEN DAVIES born 1865, it tells me there are 17 However on the screen I get offered one OWEN DAVIES which is not correct and the rest of the names are John Davies. When I go on to UK CENSUS on line I get the immediate result I wanted. Have I spent my money on the wrong company.
