This is probably him with parents in the 1834 Varde census:

Ribe, Vester Horne, Varde Købstad, Østergade, , 142, 272, FT-1834
Name: Age: Marital status: Occupation in household: Occupation: Birth place:
Johan Christian Jensen 38 Gift høker
Kirstine Godsk 46 Gift hans kone [Johan Christian Jensens kone]
Peder Sillesen 18 Ugift deres børn [Johan Christian Jensen og Kirstine Godsks barn]
Maria Sillesen 14 Ugift deres børn [Johan Christian Jensen og Kirstine Godsks barn]
Espen Sillesen 11 Ugift deres børn [Johan Christian Jensen og Kirstine Godsks barn]
Maren Sillesen 8 Ugift deres børn [Johan Christian Jensen og Kirstine Godsks barn]
Jens Christian Jensen 5 Ugift deres børn [Johan Christian Jensen og Kirstine Godsks barn]

I have no idea why the first four children were given the surname Sillesen, unless they were Kirstine's children by a prior marriage: Do you have Peder's full birthdate?

Johan Christian Jensen was a stepfather.
The father of Peder was Christopher Sillesen.
Peder was born Nov. 20th 1817 in Varde as stated (image 14).

His parents and older sister, Anne, is on this tree.

I was referring to the website of the Danish National Archive:
http://www.sa.dk/content/dk/ao-forside/find_kirkeboger
There you will find parish records up to ca. year 1950.
http://www.sa.dk/content/us/genealogy/basic_records/parish_r...

Image 14 is image 14 (called opslag 14) of the book Ribe County (Amt) - Vester Horne District (Herred) - Varde Parish (Sogn) - 1814-1820;
Attached

And Dine is not the owner of that site but the mother of the site owner (I know him:-))
