William G Sluce 36 Commercial Clerk London
Emily Sluce wife 34 Kent
George Sluce son 6 Hackney
Thomas Sluce son 5 Hackney
Major Sluce son 3 Hackney
William Sluce son 11 mths Hackney

The family, name transcribed as Slurse, in 1881

1891
RG12/468/F108/p1
Strathedon Villas, East Dulwich Road, Camberwell
Major Sluce 24 London
Alice Sluce wife 27 Meopham, Kent

In 1901 Major and Alice are living in Lewisham with niece Maud Sluce aged 7 born London. No sign of them in 1911
 
NSW Marriage 8179/1926 SLUCE MAJOR S T - ROACH ELSIE G - WOOLLAHRA * 21 Jun

So it seems Major left England between 1901 and 1911.

In the 1901 census Major and family had a servant, im assuming if they were well off enough for a servant chances are they arrived here unassisted.
