Possibly because Bucknall doesn't come under Stoke on Trent!
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

The census says they were born in Stoke-On-Trent, so I assumed the Bucknall connection came a bit later on.
It looks like the records dont quite go early enough to cover the years I would need.

The Hanley Chapel in the Methodist New Circuit is known as Bethesda Chapel, a beautiful building, presently undergoing restoration. You can Google it and get some more information and pictures.
This chapel was built in 1819 so too late for Charles if he was baptised as a baby.
