In 1841, the family were living in the Poor Houses, St James Street, Shaftesbury. John’s father was an agricultural labourer. In 1851, he was still living at home with his parents, now in Olive Yard, Shaftesbury, and his father, aged 65, was now a pauper.
In 1856, John married Mary Gray in Shaftesbury. They went on to have eleven children.

In 1900, their son, Fred, now living in Portsmouth, was summoned to the Petty Sessions by the Shaftesbury Board of Guardians for not supporting his father. Fred had been called upon by the Board to pay 1s a week towards his father's support and it was noted that one other son contributed to the father's support, but two others were not in a position to do so.
