You could also look for possible Pain/Payne marriages up to 20 years or so before the date he was born and check the parishes the marriage took place in for a baptism.
You might have already done this.
Other alternative is that he might not have been born in Devon so I suggest you look at all clusters of the surname in Devon and other Counties, also look for alternative records for the surname.
Have you check to see if there is a Headstone on his grave, it might mention other family members.
