Wiltons of Newland (General)

I'm researching a James Wilton b about 1765 d Newland 1847. The 1841 census says he was not born in Gloucestershire. I have found a marriage in Whitchurch Glamorganshire 1783 to a Martha Price which I believe is this same James Wilton. But I cannot find a birth for him anywhere on Ancestry either inside or outside Gloucestershire.

He seems to have siblings in Glamorganshire and baptisms for their first children (later ones being baptised in Gloucestershire) - I believe he was involved in the metal manufacturing in Whitchurch and he is listed in 1841 a supervisor in a metal works.

There was a Wilton family in the area of Newland for some considerable time, Morgan Wilton being a common name, but I can't make a connection to my James through any of the progeny of Morgan.

I'd appreciate any help that might be offered.
