Where does his DOB come from? The only one registered in Luton between 1873 and 1877 is this one, which is probably the one on the 1881 census.

The 1911 census, to which the OP was directed recently, gives his age as 34, so the 1881 census looks the right family.

Possible Marrigae;
William GURNEY Married Ann BROWN, 3 November 1841,Biggleswade, Bedford, England
(Source Familysearch.Org)
He appears to have died 1850 (F/S.Org)


You will need the M/C to confirm his Fathers name/occp but this looks likely to me
Baptism;
WILLIAM Gurney1 Oct 1815, St Andrew, Biggleswade to PETER/ELIZABETH
Siblings;
ANN, 18 Jan 1807, Birth 13 Aug 1806
JN, 1 Jan 1809, Birth 13 Oct 1807
ELIZABETH, 20 March 1811, Birth 7 July 1811
MARY, 8 Aug 1813
PETER, 29 Dec 1818
JAMES, 26 Aug 1821
JUDITH, 26 June 1825*** (info on her helped me find Father in Census)
FANNY, 14 Oct 1832
(F/S.Org)

As you follow the Family back much further I think these entries will fit in.

Marriage;
1 December 1805, St Andrew, Biggleswade
Peter GURNEY to Eliz REYNOLDS
(Source FreeREG)

Baptism;
St Andrew
PETER Gurney, 24 Jan 1779 to WM/ELIZ, Fathers Occp Labourer
(F/S.Org)
