His father worked as a coachman and gardener and aged 16 (1871) John was working as an apprentice carpenter.  He married Ann Inglette in 1878 and the couple had three children: Lillie Ann (1879-1970), John Francis (1880-1946) and Janette Mabel. They lived at 27 Prospect Row and John worked as a carpenter/joiner.  He died at home in 1919.
