Can't find William T. Chandler on census

I have searched for a good while this morning for William T. Chandler on 1871 and 1861 census. He was born 1845 Devizes, Wiltshire and then at some point moved to Paddington, London. I have him at home in 1851 with father William(yes another William) and mother Mary and sibling George. I also have him 1881 and 1891 with his own family but try as I might I cannot spot him on the 61 and 71. Would anyone be prepared to have a quick look to see if they can spot him. His first child was born 1872 so possibly he was already married by then but I cannot locate his parents either in 1871 but they could possibly have died. Thank you.
