You need to order a copy of the marriage certificate from the GRO as this will give you his father's name, assuming it has been recorded. |
Having a father's name will help to confirm you have the correct baptism for him.
Tracing him on census records should also help, it will give you a birth place and possible that he was still living at home on the 1841 & 1851 census. I wonder if this is where you have got his place of birth from or was it some other source.

There is an OPC for Bow who will do look ups
