CHARLES MOSS c 1809--birth look up please

#1
I have been trying to find the birth of my 3 x great grandfather Charles Moss for some time

According to census records, he was born:
1841 census-in Lancashire c 1811
1851 census in ORMSKIRK Lancashire c 1807
1861 census in UPHOLLAND Lancashire c 1807
1871 census in ORMSKIRK Lancashire c 1807
1881 census in LIVERPOOL Lancashire c 1806

Despite these differences everything else adds up to him being the same person--occupation--children etc
In 1832 he married Ann Dobson (born Whitehaven Cunberland) in Liverpool--there was no father's name needed at that time but a witness was a James Moss who could have been his father or a sibling

I have been unable to find a birth/baptismal record for Charles at Preston records office--he may have been there but I found the system difficult. If anybody has access to these records and is familiar with how they are recorded, I'd be grateful if you could do a look up for me please.

Thank you.
