Itís always wise to take family claims of connections to famous namesakes with a pinch of salt!

You know that the date given for his marriage to Emma Williams is incorrect. So perhaps some of the other information might not be 100% accurate.
Have you checked the three Edwin Bayliss marriages that I found on freeBMD? All three are in the Birmingham area. If you trace the couples in the next available census after the marriage, you can rule them in or out. Perhaps his first wife died, or perhaps one of them deserted the other.
I think the key is to trace his first marriage and wife. Then you may be able to place him in an earlier census.
I am Australian, from all the lands I come (my ancestors, at least!)

Pine/Pyne, Dowdeswell, Kempster, Sando/Sandoe/Sandow, Nancarrow, Carrington, Hounslow, Youatt, Richardson, Jarmyn, Oxlade, Coad, Bentham, Holloway, Lindner, Pittaway, and too many others to name.
Devon, Dorset, Gloucs, Cornwall, Yorks, Bucks, Oxfordshire, Wilts, Germany, Sweden, and of course London, to name a few.

I've checked every Edwin Bayliss I can find, everywhere and none of them seems to be right. I agree, finding a first marriage would be the key. My theory is that he married very young then either ran away and met Emma, or met Emma and the two of them ran away together. They possibly then got married after he had news of the death of his first wife. There seems to be no sign of him on civil or parish registrations or censuses before the birth of his first child with Emma in 1858 in Chelsea.
