I think they're both the same person/baptism. Only one showing in the Oswestry records.

oh thats o/k

have been on fin my past "just run out"

but have not been able to tie this ancestor down.

the source i found was http://www.melocki.org.uk/salop/OswestryVol3.html

There won't be a birth certificate. There were none until 1837. It will be a baptism record  from the parish records, which you have obviously seen on FindMyPast. 

It's the only one showing.

The booklets, which these are copies of, were extracted from the parish records.  FindMyPast has the images of the original record.

Have you looked for an earlier Thomas Pri(t)chard, who could be the father, or early military records?
