Could you copy over the 1871 census, please?

I do not understand your comment about the marriage certificate.
It should give you the name of the father, which will help to eliminate many possible men of his name.

if this is the marriage, then he has an additional name;
Marriages Dec 1860
Davies Shula Oswestry 6a 1357
xxx Griffiths Elizabeth Oswestry 6a 1357
Pugh John Oswestry 6a 1357
xxx Williams John Thomas Oswestry 6a 1357
