Simons/Symonds and Cox, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire

Hello,
I am currently stuck on a brick wall on my paternal line:

John Simons was born in Launton, near Bicester, Oxfordshire in 1775. He married Mary Haddocks in Bicester in 1801.

I'm fairly certain that his parents were:

James Simons and Judith Cox, who married in 1775 in Hulcott, Buckinghamshire.

The problem is, I can't seem to find any birth or baptism records for either James or Judith! I would assume that James came from Launton, and that Judith came from Hulcott... If anyone can help, I'd be extremely grateful!

James and Judith married by Licence 14 June 1774. He was a Labourer from Launton and she came from Hulcott. Unforunately I can't find any baptisms. The National Burial Index has an entry for the death of a James Simons in Launton 1818. No other details, not even a date, just the year.

From OxFHS - Launton Transcripts CD,

The burial for James Simons that emeltee found - 30 Jan 1818. Launton, gives an age of 71, and a labourer. So a birth c1747 ish.

Launton burial. 19 Jan 1826. Judy Simons. no age given.

Launton Baptism. 16 Oct 1748 - James, son of William and Sarah. Born 4th Sept. (Ancestry have missed 2 years of original images of baptisms for Launton, including 1748). No wonder you couldn't find it, if you use Ancestry.!

Launton Marriage - 25 Jan 1742 - William Symonds, bachelor of Boarstall, Bucks, to Sarah Knib. o.t.p. by Banns.

Ancestry have the 1742 transcript for the above William Symonds marriage, but when you click for the original image, it takes you to an almost blank page dated 1745.
