So it is the 1858 marriage and arrival could not have been 1856.

No births found in England.

The marriage of John Greedy to Eliza Powell is on FreeReg. It took place in Thurloxton, Somerset 27 May 1858. John's father is John Greedy, Carpenter

FreeReg has the baptism for a John Greedy 12 October 1834 in Wiveliscombe, parents John, a wheelwright, and Mary.

Can't see anything so far for Eliza, whose father was William Powell, also a Carpenter.
 
Eliza died 3 March 1924
