Can you help me with sources for Stephen Fry (1733-1816)?

Stephen is, apparently, my sixth great grandfather. To date, I've not been able to locate birth or death records for him.

...But, using FamilySearch, I have found a burial record, and a possible christening record (the christening record states Stephen's last name only "Fry").

I'd love to add some links to solid records to Stephen's profile. Is anyone able to help me with this?

Name: Stephen Fry
Gender: Male
Marriage or Bann Date: 13 May 1761
Marriage Place: Wells, St Cuthbert, Somerset, England
Parish as it Appears: Wells, St Cuthbert
Search Photos: Search for 'Wells, St Cuthbert' in the UK City, Town and Village Photos collection
Phillimore Ecclesiastical Parish Map:

Source: Somerset Heritage Service; Taunton, Somerset, England; Somerset Parish Records, 1538-1914; Reference Number: D\P\w.st.c/2/1/6

With him being in Wells, I suspect the burial in Wells is his rather than the fellow in Barbados unless you find some indication he went to West Indies.

This is fabulous - thank you so much T Stanton. And I agree, the burial in Wells seems far more likely!
Thanks for the star, Clare. I did go to the profile and modified the citations so that it gives the document locator at SHS in case someone wants that information. I think you may find more on him. I generally find good records for Wells since it is an ecclesiastical center.
Thank you T Stanton - I really appreciate your help
Great work T!
