Given the variations we see with this family's surname, could this be John's baptism? The christian names, timing, location and father's occupation fit but perhaps 'Miles' is too far away from 'Alston'. It could be a transcription error - worth looking at the original PR.

Possible death record for William. The age and timing are about right. It is also unusual to describe someone aged 60 as 'the son of' but the only record we have for William's birth/baptism, only shows a mother's name 'Hannah Halstead'.

The surname found in records for this family take three forms Alston, Alstead or Halstead and appear to change randomly rather than any deliberate attempt to change - presumably this is down to parish clerks and enumerators writing down what they believe they heard. On the 30 Mar 1851, the surname Alston was used on the census but Halstead used when his son Thomas was baptised on the same day!
