Although the Place of Birth shows as Whitechapel, I wouldn't necessarily discount this on a census taken at somewhere like the Whitechapel Infirmary. My thinking is that it's unlikely the person completing the return went round every inmate getting accurate details and so probably made an educated guess in some cases. Shouldn't have done so obviously, but human nature being what it is...

Ironic that the river Taff,as in Taffy,flows through Cardiff suburbs.
Indeed, Dave. Strictly speaking, it's the river Taf (one "f"), which is pronounced "Tarve" but, annoyingly, the mispronunciation "Taff" has become the norm, with a totally unnecessary - and incorrect - extra "f" tacked onto the end.
"Taf" is just another variant on a commonly-used name for rivers in ancient Britain. In Wales, we have the Taf, Teifi, Tawe and Tywi; elsewhere the Tay, Teme, Teviot, Tamar, Tavy, Team, Taw, Tyne and Thames ("Tafwys" in the original Welsh). Most, if not all, of these names appear to derive from a Brythonic root word meaning something like "dark water".
The nickname "Taffy", though, comes from a mispronunciation of the Welsh for David ("Dafydd").
