I have come across duplication in the census, ie the person is away from home and is recorded at home as well as the place they are visiting

I think there is more information in your two census lists than already mentioned.There is the reference to Sarah Bone, so there is a family connection. Secondly there are Congdons on both lists.How many female servants would Bone the farmer have required? It's possible that either Ann Congdon or (more likely Sarah Pearse is Mary Ebbot's servant who accompanied her the 3 miles (the distance between both village centres)from Tresmeer to Egloskerry.It's interesting to look up Egloskerry on Google/Wikipedia. It's never been a large village but it had 552 occupanst in 1841. Tresmeer is described as a hamlet which would have been even smaller. Have you checked death records (and later census) for Mary? If there's only one then it also points to the same person. I wouldn't think given her age in 1851 that she would have moved far from this rural area.
