Henry Phillip was living with his grandfather at the time of the 1881 census at Stratfield Farm, Kidlington, Oxford, England. Henry's father died in 1878, so it is possible that during hard times after his death, he was farmed out to stay with relatives. Harriet Annie, his sister, was also living with her aunt Harriet Jane Albury (nee Knibbs) and her husband George Albury at the time:
