On a quick look through the census I think I have the right man in the 1881 census with wife Thomasin, living in Honiton Devon

RG11; Piece: 2132; Folio: 47; Page: 15
Ancestry.co.uk (http://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&db=uki1881%2c&rank=0&gsfn=james&gsln=stocker&sx=&gsco=&s0RealGL=UKICen&f1=&f2=&f5=&f18=&rg_81004011__date=1815&rs_81004011__date=5&f14=devon*&f15=&_8000C002=&_80008002=&_80018002=&f7=&f8=&f9=&gskw=&prox=1&ti=5538&ti.si=0&gss=angs-d&pcat=UKICEN&fh=1&h=3018998&recoff=1+2)

From freeBMD it appears Thomasin dies in Honiton in March 1884 age 70.
I cannot see James in 1891 and the closest death I can find is:
Sep 1885 aged 83, Honiton, vol 5b page 10

I realise the age is way out but maybe the person registering his death was not sure of his correct age. There doesn't appear to be any other James Stockers in Honiton at that time that this death could refer to.
