What else can you find out about him? 

On the info given there is no idea of where or when he may have been born, in order to begin to look for a baptism to find his parents ..... and as for grandparents, that is probably hours and hours, if not years, of research away!

So, what happened to him after his marriage, presumably he had a family - where was that? Hopefully researching them will lead to his death. And hopefully his burial will give an age. Then you can work out an approx. year of birth. 
Did he survive till census era? If so, that will help with year of birth too, and also hopefully a place of birth.
What was his occupation? (from childrens baptisms)
Who were the witnesses at his marriage? Can they be traced to flesh out the family a bit more.



Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex
