There is a reasonable chance that his application for the post will
exist (at TNA. Poor Law records) and this is quite likely to include
birth detaiuls, abnd certainly early career details. This will give you
his locatyion in earlier censuses. Most applications would be for a
joint appointment as Master and Matron, so her details should be there
as well.
