Joseph Firth - Yorkshire

Hi all
Am stuck again - I only have scant details -
my gg grandad Henry Firth married Martha Greenough on26 July 1840 at the Church of Tong in Parish of Birstall Yorkshire. His father is named as Joseph Firth a Wheelwright.
I have no idea of Joseph's DOB or place either but would presume around Bradford, Birstall, North Bierley as Henry was born 1814 in Hunsworth Birstall.
I managed to find 1 x baptism on IGI for a Henry with father Joseph, mother Elizabeth but no surname for her or any other info.
Cannot narrow down any census records for Joseph either but I have from 1841-1891 for Henry and Martha. I looked at heaps of census but unless he changed his occupation, I didn't find a wheelwright or wife Elizabeth. I have even googled them, lots of Firths but not mine!
This puzzles me as the Firth family are very large in Yorkshire, especially Huddersfield, which I believe are distantly related somehow.
Any help in the right direction would be appreciated
