My great-uncle Isaac Newton was born in 1878, birth registered September qr 1878 Wycombe district, christened 7th July 1878 Holy Trinity, Hazlemere; according to 1881 and 1891 census, he was born in Hughenden, and there he is with his Mum and Dad, John and Mary, and his brothers and sisters, in Hughenden, but after that he disappeared!

Absolutely; could have died or moved, but can't find him anywhere.

It's a needle in a haystack. There are loads of Isaac Newton deaths of his age all over the place. I can't see anything obvious in the 1901 census or in the pasenger lists.
