Looking for John Jefferies

Hello community, i'm trying to find the parents of a John Jefferies however i'm unable to locate any information. John Jefferies was inconsistent with his age/DOB and birth location which makes it tricky to find the information. I have linked the censuses, marriage cert and death cert which makes things easier to understand. MY aim is to try and find Johns parents so i can continue going back with my research.

Possibly Born in Middlesex?
possibly a servant/Butler like his father or maybe a Gas fitter / lamplighter like recent generations?

John Jefferies Junior

1841 Census - MISSING
1851 Census - MISSING
1861 Census - https://i.gyazo.com/f3fd43f6bc5813e3...9ac4381e39.png
1871 Census - https://i.gyazo.com/e0b68bea43973876...15fd4e5360.png
1881 Census - https://i.gyazo.com/a188e887ea45160b...87a04c3f4f.png
1891 Census - https://i.gyazo.com/4eaa0a764a016ce0...a4a253edbd.png

He died in 1899 so that was the last of the census. I have his death certificate of John Jefferies: https://i.gyazo.com/thumb/1000/b5dcb...a5f482-jpg.jpg

From looking at the census we can see he never kept a consistent age or birth location so it was hard for me to search for a place for possible baptism to find his parents.

John married Louisa Chalkley in 1855 and according to John at that time his father (John Jefferies) was a Butler.
