I suspect that you need to search the Overseers and Bastardy records at Gloucestershire Archives -
The overseers were responsible for identifying the fathers of illegitimate children who became a financial burden on the parish, so they could contribute towards costs. There can be an examination of the child’s mother to encourage her to name the father and a bond against the father committing him to provide financial support

my quick online search didn't identify anything related however its worth you having a look and ordering a copy of any relevant info. Example Thomas NORTH 1733 Bulley FoD
