William Kerfoot - help finding his birth please

Surnames: Kerfoot
My gt gt gt grandfather was born out of wedlock and seems to be something of an enigma. I am unable to find a birth certificate for him or a record of him in the 1861 census.
We believe that he was an illegitimate son and I cannot find him on the 1861 census (although I understand that these do not exist anymore for this area?) The 1871 census has him born in Llangollen in 1858 (his grandfather would have put this down). The 1881 census has him born in 1857 in Denbighshire, the 1891 census in Denbigh born in 1854, the 1901 census details him as born in Acrefair, Denbighshire and the 1911 census has him born in Rhosymedre in 1854. As I dont live in the area I am unable to search parish records for him and I am hoping that someone will be able to help me find his true birth year. There is one birth registered in 1853 for ST Asaph, which would tie in with his family, but not what has been recorded on census... anyn help gratefully received.
