Hi davej,
I had a look at the 1881 entry, and had a thought that maybe Samuel and Mary were father and daughter.
So I scratched back to 1841 and found this.

Oswestry, Shropshire.
Reg,dist. Oswestry
Sub.reg. St.Martins.

Samuel Lee. -30
Charlotte Lee.- 35
Mary Lee. - 5
Sarah Lee. - 1

Another family from Redbourn, Herts. 1851.
ED 3c
House. 40

Samuel Lee.39
Esther. 36
Charles. 16
Henry. 12
Eliza. 9
Mary Ann. 6

Your Samuel Lee and family appears to be travellers in 1881, and that may be why I can't find them back down the various census.

Sorry I can't be much more help to you, but I'm sure someone here can be of more help.

Steve.:)

Hi Dave,
I think, but I'm not sure, that the info which is submitted to LDS, needs to be checked for verification.
The age difference of 29yrs between Samuel and Mary is what got me thinking.
Good luck.
