Going by what Geoffrey said I have found this marriage on a CD by Rotherham FHS - Rotherham All Saints Church on 9th June 1794 William Harvey to Hannah Jervis. Unfortunately they have not done a baptism disk for the above parish for dates prior to 1803. John

Re: Late Baptisim
which could account for the reason he isn't in the Cathedral Baptisms.
Harvey, John (of Low Ropery, born 1795-03-30).
Baptised October 27, 1852, by E.G.Kelly at St John's, Park.
Parents name(s) are Hannah & William (Cutler).
William on the Apprenticeship List was a sc. Scissorsmith I believe.
I have this Hannah Harvey in my notes as John did have a sister Hannah.
But on the census his sister ( now Hannah Kay ) gives place of birth as Sheffield.
Though there is a link with Rotherham as her mother Hannah Jervis was i belive born at Rawmarsh and married at Rotherham.
It looks as if they still had connections with the Baptist Chapel, anyway. By the way, if you look at Eric Youle's list of Cutlers' apprenticeships, I think not only the Harveys, but also the sole Hervey all relate to this same family. I expect you would find Jarvis variants of Jervis too: they're both the same kind of Norman-French name.
Some of my Quaker ancestors were baptized late in order to marry in the C of E; burial might have been a similar consideration, but then you have to ask why would John particularly want to be buried in an Anglican church-yard?
