Frederick Mepsted - anything before 1881?

Hi

Trying to track my Gt Gt Grandfather - Frederick Mepsted.

I've got him on 1881 & 1891 - with DOB as 1855 in 1881 and 1857 in 1891.

His place of birth is given as St Giles, London, which matches with a Apr-Jun 1855 record on FreeBMD.

I can't find him on any other census returns though. Even a general search on Findmypast only brings up the 1881 & 91 returns.

The only explanation I can think of is that he went by a different name at some point in his life?

I'm thinking that I'm going to have to try and get a birth certificate to try and find out more, but can anyone advise on any other courses of action?

thanks
