Did Samuel come up the river Severn?

Please can you advise?
I have hit a brick wall in searching for my great Grandfather X4 Samuel Charles 1795 born Swansea, South Wales.
I believe that he was born in Saint Mary's Swansea but there is no baptismal or Newspaper reference.
He is the 1951 census as coming from Swansea.
I have all of his family born in Telford Red Lake, Ketley, Wellington),
his marriage to Elizabeth Price, etc.
He must have left Swansea (a world copper producing area) and made his way up
the river Severn to what is today Telford where he became an Iron Miner.
I wonder why he left a busy Industrial area for the Industrial Revolution?
I have been searching for many years for his birth and familybut without success.
Can anyone please suggest where I can look next?
Many thanks
Mike and Linda
