James Saunders - help placing movements


I need a little help here from people who are more qualified than me to try piece a little puzzle together.

One of the ancestors that I am searching is James Saunders (Born 20/10/1843 in Bideford, Devon) whom I have found birth details, movements into an orphanage and details of when he left the same orphanage however there is a massive gap from 1858 until I find him again on the 1901 Census where he is living in Stafford without any wife listed but lodging at a house.

Is there any of doing any extra searching to see what happened in between, where is wife and who his wife was or anything else that can help me fill in the gap from leaving the orphanage in Bideford Devon in 25/06/1858 and arriving on the address below in 1901.
