Default John Vowles

Name - "official" name and what they were known as John Vowles
Date and place of birth About 1815 Bedminster, Somerset
Names of parents Thomas Vowles and Hannah nee Filer - most probably
Date and place of baptism - if applicable 17 Dec 1815 Bedminster, Somerset - if I have the right one
Details of each of his or her marriages - if any 20 Feb 1837 St Mary Redcliffe, Bristol, to Ann Sage. Witnesses Samuel Harwood and James or Jane Sage
Occupation(s) - if any Sawyer, Watchman, Porter and Watcher
Addresses where they lived (including county if in UK) - and please list which censuses you have or haven't found him/her on (if s/he lived in census times!).
1841 - Wick, parish of Chew Magna, Somerset
1851 - 29 Browns Row, Bedminster, Somerset
1861 - 29 South Church St., Cardiff, Glamorgan
1871 - 23 Sophia St., Cardiff, Glamorgan
1881 - 47 Sanquhar St., Roath, Glamorgan

Date, place and cause of death 1888 Cardiff, not got certificate. Death registered Oct-Dec quarter.
Date and place of burial. Not found
Details of will / administration of their estate - if applicable None
Memorial inscription - if any Not found

None of John's children was named Thomas or Hannah, which makes me wonder whether the baptism I have found is the right one. If it is him, then he had a brother Samuel born 1814 and a sister Mary Ann born 1819, both Bedminster. One of John's children did have the middle name Samuel. John is 35 on the 1851 census, so the baptism date of 1815 would fit with this. If only they'd waited a few more months to get married!

Edit: I have DNA matches to Hannah Filer's family, so this does seem to be correct.
