Vincent ended up in Isleworth in June 1876 after the school that employed him as an assistant teacher moved there from Ramsgate.
''His boss, William Port Stokes (c. 1832–1890), held out the prospect of a small salary after the move (he had previously only promised room and board). On top of food and shelter, if Vincent was lucky, he would receive a maximum of £20 annually. By comparison,
a year earlier, he had been earning £90 a year working for the art dealers
Goupil & Cie. Vincent therefore had to live more modestly than he
was used to''
