Have you looked for him on the 1841 census which is available on Family Search?

Who did he name as his father on his marriage cert?

If you are looking for his occupation that would be shown on any census entry

As per the BFHS Surnames Index CD a John Skinner married at Southill in 1849 as did a Sophia Bygrave. Southill is in the Biggleswade RD.

Sophia Bygrave was baptised at Southill in 1828 where it says her abode was Broom. 

Daughter was Mary Ann Skinner baptised Southill in 1849 abode Biggleswade
