anonymous, you need to provide at least the information that you have for others to assist you.  If you provide LESS than all that you know, then you should expect us to have LESS success than you have had.
 
In this case a decade for one of the events would be really helpful, and be a bit more specific about what you want to know.
 
If this person has a wikitree profile, then set it to have a public biography and populate it with everything you know that is relevant - and edit your question to link to it !  There are lots of people here that are keen to help but they need to know at least what you do.

Assuming that I've identified the right person
 
From the NZ BMD (https://bdmhistoricalrecords.dia.govt.nz/) Howard James Nash died in 1924...
1924/10537 Strong Howard James Nash 83Y
...and thus was apparently born in 1841 so if he came from Exeter, Devon he may just appear in the 1841 English census with his father William.
 
Incidentally between 1876 & 1893 James Nash Howard Strong had several children with a Florence...
1876/8175 Strong Frederick George Howard Bach Florence James Nash Howard
1877/9727 Strong Albert Harold Florence James Nash Harold
1879/13695 Strong John Arthur Florence James Nash Howard
1880/10993 Strong Leonard Augustus Florence James Nash Howard
1882/11877 Strong Catherine Elizabeth Florence James Nash Howard
1884/12029 Strong Ellen Winifred Florence James Nash Howard
1886/3255 Strong Walter Septimus Florence James Nash Howard
1889/14042 Strong Gilbert Victor Florence James Nash Howard
1893/4158 Strong Florence Edith Florence James Nash Howard
...but there is no sign of a marriage in the NZ BMD.
 
There is a likely death record for Florence assuming that she did not remarry...
1928/2502 Strong Florence 73Y

I've been wasting my time!  I've just found an extensive biography online - he became the chief librarian of the Christchurch Library in 1908... http://christchurchcitylibraries.com/Heritage/People/S/StrongHoward/
Did you really not know this?

We have done an huge amount of research on James Nash Howard Strong born 3/10/1839 or 18/9/1840 and have just returned from Gisborne visiting sites where he lived beforehe returned to Christchurch. What relationship do you have to him? He is my great-grandfather, my grandfather being Arthur John.

Howard as he preferred to be called had a very interesting life and married Florence on 14 Jan 1875.

We have very little info on his childhood and his apparent involvement in the Crimean War. Would be very interested in knowing more.
