I think we can dismiss this one for the following reasons:

This is the 1861 Census for Ridley A Powell
Monmouthshire Abergavenny District 5
The National Archives© 1997-2014
Household Number Given Name Surname Age Estimated Birth Year Relationship Gender Birth City Birth County Birth Country
3 Thomas Powell 28 1833 Head Male Abergavenny Monmouthshire Wales
3 Catharine Powell 32 1829 Wife Female Llanvair Monmouthshire Wales
3 Hanbury Hicks 8 1853 Stepson Male Abergavenny Monmouthshire Wales
3 Ridley A Powell 9/12 1860 Son Male Abergavenny Monmouthshire Wales
3 Emma Morgan 20 1841 Servant Female Abergavenny Monmouthshire Wales

The image gives the occupation of Thomas as Draper & Grocer which matches the baptism record but we find hat mother's name is given as Catherine and not Caroline. Also there is a stepson Hanbury Hicks so we look for a marriage between Thomas Powell and Catherine Hicks:
Marriages Dec 1859
Hicks Catharine Abergavenny 11a 73
Powell Thomas Abergavenny 11a 73

I would suggest that there is an error in the baptism records or in the transcription.

One further comment with regards to the marriage in 1859 in Abergavenny of Thomas Powell to Caroline Chivers. The 1911 Census for Caroline tell us that she was married 52 years. 1859 +52 = 1911
