I was thinking an army connection too. It would explain the childrens' various places of birth. Woolwich is very much an army town and they were dependent on horses. He also might not have been a soldier but grooms were needed for the horses.

Interesting to note that on the 1901 Census, James is noted as "Horse Keeper, L.C.C Tramways"


this could give an indication to help find him on earlier censuses ........... plus it COULD fit in with the 1881 Census entry found by JoyKM ....................


in 1881 there is a John Vick b Woolwich about 1852, private soldier, "Fourth (Q.D.) Hussars", Aldershot, Hampshire.



Army service could also possibly explain the age difference between James and his wife Annie

1861 at WInterbourne Wiltshire.
James Vick age 8, makes his approx birth year at c1853. Birthplace Woolwich Kent. Parents Joseph & Eliza.

Working on that, the following is a possibility.........

1871.
At Salisbury Wiltshire.
James VICK, Errand Boy, age 17, b.Woolwich c1854.
He appears to be living with the Mullins family, listed as son (I'm not convinced he is the son).
Edit: Transcript says Willins, original image looks like Mullins.

James born approx 1850 - in 1861 census living with family in winterbourne in wiltshire then no record of him until the 1901 census when he's the head of the family living in camberwell, aged 48-51. Can't find him 1871, 1881, 1891.
