Henry WARNER (b: abt 1853) - Aberystwyth Connection?

Hello All,

I am trying to move back a generation from Henry WARNER who was born in about 1853, but I do not know where. Here is what I do know....

He married Caroline VAULK on 27 Jul 1887 and the certificate shows Henry's father as William WARNER, a shopkeeper. Henry was described as a Hawker living in Bridge Street, Aber. There is a newspaper report that confirms this marriage.

There are also a death notice in the Aberystwyth newspaper in 1888 for a 15mth old son of a Henry WARNER, greengrocer, Skinner Street, Aberystwyth. I have found the matching birth & death references.

I cannot find Henry after or before this in the census records or BMD records. Caroline appears as a married woman living as a "friend" in Aberystwyth in 1891.

So my questions are:
(1) How can I find out if Henry was a greengrocer and hence the father of the infants whose deaths were reported in the newspapers
(2) Any suggestions for why I cannot find Henry beyond the info above (quite willing to hear that I have missed something!!!!)
