Aged 69 at death in 1915 so 1846 seems about right https://s3.amazonaws.com/bg.ami.com/headstones/images/20160106/15495918.jpg

There's a Joseph Squire in the 1861 census in Bedford, in lodgings. Aged 14. Born America, a US citizen.

If he was a US citizen it would be easier for him to settle in New Zealand if he said that he was Canadian.

I can see that there is a baptism at Bedford St Mary in 1853 but there is no corresponding birth registration. In the transcriptions I have seen there is no indication of the child's age.

It might be an idea to ask someone to take a look at the register page to see if there is any more information given.

Steven Gibbs has transcribed this register page and may be able to help.
http://www.stevengibbs.me.uk/HomePage.htm

His transcription includes an address (Grey Friars)

I cannot find a matching family in any census.
