Laurence Kelly

Laurence Kelly was my great grandfather. According to his marriage cert, his father was also Laurence Kelly. Looking through baptismal registers, I cannot find a Laurence Kelly baptized circa 1853. The only entry I find with a Laurence Kelly as father around that time is for a Ben Kelly. I then guessed that his parents were Laurence Kelly and Bridget Hassett. Any thoughts?
