Zachariah James Boreman-early-mid 1800s

I am trying to find out more information about my great-great grandfather, Zachariah James Boreman, who lived in the
Chelsea-Pimlico area of London. He had two sons, Charles
Frederick Boreman b around 1843 and Alfred John Boreman,
b around 1846. (There might have been a daughter b around 1847.) Zachariah was a plumber by trade, listed as such
on record of his son's marriage in 1874. He was
also listed as widowed on that same record.

I am looking for any records or information that shows his
earlier life, where he lived, who his wife was and when he
was born. I have not been able to find any record of him.
I did find a much earlier record of a Zachariah James Boreman marrying a Mary Wilcox in 1791 and having a son,
named Zachariah James Boreman in Oct 1891 in St Martin in the fields, Westminster, London. (The father later became widowed and married again in 1798 to a Lucy Carter with
the marriage taking place in Hammersmith) But I could
find nothing further on the son born in 1791. (could this be
my g-g-grandfather? That would place him in his mid 50s when
he started having children. Am I missing another generation?
Sure could use some help on this, please.

Also, could my Zachariah possibly have two brothers by
the names of Horatio Sidney Boreman and Frederick Felix
Boreman, both located in census records living in the same
area around Chelsea? And also two sisters, Charlotte and
Elizabeth. Elizabeth also married a member of a Carter

I will respond to all responses.
Thank You.
