I can't find a Henry Cowham in the census either.
I found a birth for a Henry William Cowham 1849 in Lancashire and a William Henry 1849 in Sheffield but that's about it.
About what year are you looking for?
might be transcribed as Cohen or something like it
I found this marriage below. Does it relate.

okay, I did search 1844,45,&c births came up with the above.
The father John Cowham was a tailor I mean't to include that.

on the above 1891 Census I forgot to mention, it is written, Louisa and her mother were born in Hackney and Frederick and Charles were born in Islington. Shoreditch and Islington are only about 1k apart and in the borough of Hackney

obviously same person but no record of birth HENRY WILLIAM is a different person as he also appears in the later census along side our HENRY. i suspect HENRY born 1844 in BELGIUM in the 1861 census may be him.He was living in BETHNAL GREEN at the time.GLYN
