Can I just confirm that the Isaac who married Louisa BROWN was the son of Emmanuel and Ann, and the Isaac who was the son of Isaac and Ellen is the one who is missing after 1881?

Ellen's son Walter died in 1882 so that equates with her details in 1911 and other children are still living.

Yes, that's correct. The son of Isaac and Ellen disappears after 1881, and Frederick Isaac appears out of nowhere in 1897. Both were born in the same year -/+1 and the same village and both had a father called Isaac, although a different occupation (farmer) is stated for Frederick Isaac's father on his marriage certificate than Isaac's father (a lifelong shoemaker). There are only two Isaac Floreys in Oxfordshire who could be Frederick Isaac's father, and one seems not to have died childless (and not had any connection to Standlake, other than that his father was born there). The other is the Isaac is the one who married Ellen Turner and had a son called Isaac in the same year and village as Frederick Isaac states in the 1901 and 1911 censuses.

Moreover, Isaac son of Isaac and Ellen is definitely related to Howard Florey (Australian Nobel prize winner), and Frederick Isaac apparently passed down stories of being related to Howard Florey to his descendants. I checked the other Isaac Florey (the one who probably died childless) for a connection to Howard Florey and couldn't find one (although, since his father was from Standlake, he probably would be related at some point, but there was no close connection).
