Plausible enough to hypothesize that it's the same man.  But, you need  to 
get a copy of the birth registration, and also a marriage record for  
William.  Both should name the parents (including occupation).

I  neglected to put place of birth ofr the 1851 census and have corrected 
and  am resending. Please ignore previous post of same name.

Might someone  be able to tell me if the data here makes sense as 
possibly the same man.  I am working with areas I am unfamiliar with and 
don't know if it makes  sense or not.
I'd like to confirm that it makes sense that the William Loe  of the 
1871, 81 91 and 1901 censuses (shoemaker) could be the William LOW  of 
1841 and 1851 (son of a shoemaker) , and the William LOE born 1940 from  
Free BMD (first entry in list below)

William LOE born 1840,  Quarter of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar ; District: 
Lambeth County: Greater  London, London, Surrey (from Ancestry.com's Free 
BMD “England & Wales,  FreeBMD Birth Index, 1837-1915" database)

1841census. Civil parish:  Lambeth Hundred: Brixton (Eastern Division) 
County/Island: Surrey;  Registration district: Lambeth Sub-registration 
district: Kennington  Second.
William LOW, 1 year old , in home of James LOW (shoe maker)  .

1851 census. Civil parish: Shoreditch-Ecclesiastical parish: St  
John-County/Island: Middlesex; Registration district:  
Shoreditch-Sub-registration district: Hoxton Old Town-ED, institution,  
or vessel: 8
William LOW, 11, born Shoreditch, Middlesex, England, son  in home of 
James LOW (shoe maker)

1871 census. London, Bethnal  Green.
household of William LOE, 31, born Surrey, England, shoe  maker.

1881 census. Surrey, England. Civil Parish: Croyden, Town or  village: 
Croydon; Urban Sanitary District: Croydon
household of William  Loe, 41, born Stockwell, Surrey, England, shoemaker

1891 census.  Northamptonshire-Civil Parish: St Sepulchres;
William LOE, Head, male 51,  Shoemaker, born Stockwell, Surrey

1901 census. Northamptonshire , St  Sepulchre (Civil) Parish.
William Loe, male 61, Shoemaker, Stitchman, Hand  sewn, Worker 
(“Employer, Worker or Own account”), Working at home, Born:  Stockwell.

For those familiar with the regions ...does this look the  same man? 
There are obvious discrepancies. Can they be accounted  for?

Thanks for any insight or  guidance
