We see Thomas in 1861, living at Talbot Street, Oldbury, Worcestershire:

__________

Thomas appears in the 1871 census living at Sibson, Leicestershire with 7 of his children. Strangely, his wife Mary doesn't appear to be living with them at that time. Their youngest child was just 4 months old, so it maybe she was unwell after the birth and staying with family? Maybe she was just away visiting relatives for another reason.
