Would love to find this man in 1851 & 1861 census.

William Powis born 5th June 1843 in Cheltenham, Gloucester. His trade was Marble Polisher
Parents: Joseph Powis & Maria Ceyzer
Grandparents: Joseph Powis & Frances Baker.
GreatGrandparents: Thomas Powis & Elizabeth Saunders.

William married Esther Mustoe on 16th Sep 1865
Esther had previously been married to Samuel Bedwell by whom she had at least two children.

William & Esther had the following children:
Frances b. Jun qtr 1866, Cheltenham.
Ellen Hannah b. Mar qtr 1868, Cheltenham.
William Joseph b. 14 Nov 1869, Cheltenham. (in contact with descendant)
Albert Thomas b. 15 July 1871, Cheltenham. (my great grandfather)
Frank b. Jun qtr 1873, Cheltenham.
Florence Louise b. Mar qtr 1876, Cheltenham.

Esther died on 30th Jan 1892 in Cheltenham.

William's 2nd marriage was to Eliza Smith on 29 Aug 1896 in Cheltenham.
As far as I know there were no children.

William does not appear to have lived with his mother, as he is not with her on the 1851 or 1861, I have not been able to locate him in either census. By the 1871 he is married to his first wife Esther & living at 8 Exmouth Street in Cheltenham.
