He was illegitimate then! I just found the family on the 1881 census as a mixture of Masons and Mills. Emma Mason is spouse to Henry. I wonder if Ellen was a sister?

so looks like the Mason's took him in probably because Ellen couldnt look after him .

It doesnt help that he was a bit older than first thought when trying to find him
