Samuel Holding

I feel as though I'm going around in circles and have spent the best part of two hours this afternoon trying to find out more about my 3rd Great Uncle Samuel Holding. :confused::confused::confused:

Samuel was born in Southwark, London c1837 to Abraham Holding and Sophia Hornigold. After the 1851 Census I can't find any trace of him in the UK, no marriage in London although I am aware that he could have married in another part of the UK. He passed away in 1884, Lambeth, London aged 47.

Any ideas where to go from here would be appreciated. Am hoping that he did marry and have children thus giving me more ancestors to trace! :p

Many thanks in advance all! :D
