Is Charles Allen my fifth great grandfather?

So I'm looking for orphaned profiles with the surname of Allen to source, since my great great great grandmother Caroline Slade's maiden name was Allen, and I come across the record for Charles Allen, who was married in Shoreditch in 1773. Since Caroline was born in Shoreditch in 1819, the thought strikes me that there's a better than usual chance that they were related somehow. But the sources I have access to can't fill in the crucial missing links. From Caroline's christening record, I know her father's name was James, but I haven't been able to find any link between James and Charles. Is there anybody familiar with 18th-19th century records in London/Middlesex who might be able to shine some more light on this?
