Later census gives place of birth as Henley on Thames (ADDED also Wolvercote).  It helps us if you give more information from the census that you have including references.

Where and when did he marry and what information is given on the certificate

Yes,  Henley on Thames is correct,  1891 piece 552 Folio 112,  1901, piece 592 folio 44 page 32.   1881 piece 783 folio 17 page 28.

Hope the above helps I am looking fo Adam prior to 1881

"PISHILL, (or Cuss-hill), a parish in the hundred of Pirton, county Oxford, 6 miles N.W. of Henley-on-Thames,
This might explain why he was not on earlier census returns?

As far as I can see the baptism records for Adam was the only one for Adam & Emma and the same for Genty/Jane. Note they might have been born earlier than the baptism date.
