Henry Stock. Where was he in 1861??

My great, great, great grandfather was Henry Stock born in 1843 in Finchingfield, Essex. Subsequent censuses say he was born in Gosfield and Wethersfield but I have his baptism. He was baptised in Finchingfield son of John and Charlotte in March 1843. He'd have been about 18 in 1861. His mum Charlotte died in 1849 and his dad John died in 1856.

Now there is a Henry Stock born about 1839 in Gosfield in 1861 in the Navy but I dont think he is mine as there is a Henry Stock in 1851 born in Gosfield about 1839.

My Henry Stock is 28 in 1871 a General Dealer living in Leigh On Sea, Essex with wife Caroline. They had married in 1866 I think, in Leigh.

I just cannot find him in 1861 anywhere. Can anyone help???
