Husband missing from 1881 census

Husband missing from 1881 census

Surnames: Davy Drummond
Can anyone help?

Fanny Drummond married Henry Davy Dec 27th 1880 in Middlesex. On the 1891 census they are happily living together with 3 children and Fanny's mother Ann Drummond in East Ham. However, on the 1881 census, Henry is missing. Fanny is living in Camberwell, listed as married, and occupation is listed as "druggist's wife". Henry was a "druggist" so this all makes sense. I have tried searching the census for Henry Davy to see where he was but cannot find him.

Can anyone help track him down?

Fanny Sarah Drummond
Birth 1862 in Marylebone, Middlesex, England

Henry Davy
Birth abt 1858 in Kings Cross, Middlesex, England

if you look - Fanny is shown as wife - not "Head" - think, he's just been missed off as, each "household" always starts off with "Head" regardless of how many are in that household

I cannot see a Henry/Harry etc who is a drug*
