the details of John's father from the marriage cert may help. Also, the names of the wtinesses.

Do you have a census entry for them in 1861? I know there are Monmouthshire pieces missing from 1861.
The 1851 for John, Maria & Sarah appears to be the correct family as there is a birth reg for Sarah Austin with mmn Pugh. So, from that John was 25 and born in Herefordshire. More than old enough to be full age on marriage the previous year.

Following Sarah Austin in Winforton who may be John's mother, in 1851 she has a 2 year old grand daughter living with her, Jane Austin born Merthyr.

Birth reg Jane Austin march qtr 1849 Merthyr Tydfil vol 26 pg 433, no mother's maiden name, so illegitimate.
still with grandmother in 1861

birth reg for Alice Davies Austin march qtr 1852 Hay vol 11b pg 137 also has no mother's maiden name.
