My trusty gazeteer says Harescomb (without the 'e') is a parish 3 miles west of Stroud.

In the 1841, all the family are shown as not born in County; in 1851 all except John are shown as b Bath. There is this possible baptism for Charles but given the difference in ages between the 41 and 51 it would be difficult to prove:

County Somerset
Place Bath
Church Walcot - St Swithin
RegisterNumber 430
DateOfBirth
BaptismDate 22 Feb 1829
Forename Charles
Sex M
FatherForename James
MotherForename Mary
FatherSurname BENNETT
MotherSurname
Abode Margaret's Plaic

I have spent 6 months looking for his army file but the breakthrough was from earlier in this thread when I learned that Strand was a mis-transcription of Stroud.

I have looked at every Bennett in FMP military records born around the same time without any luck.

The census records we are currently discussing look like it could be him because of geography, father's first name and listed occupation of carpenter on his attestation which is the same as the father in these records.

Here's his marriage from FamilySearch.org:
