1861/71 census lookup (bilston, staffordshire)

Hi, Could anyone help me find my GGG grandfather please? My GG grandfather was David Fox and he was born in 1859 (+/- 1 year) in Bilston, Staffordshire. His mother was called Elizabeth and was born in 1820 (same place). His father was dead by the time of the 1881 census, which is the earliest I have been able to look at. If anyone has access to the 1861 or 71 censi could you see if you can find the family when the father was alive please? Very many thanks, Rob
