John married Esther Clarke, daughter of William Clarke, on 1st December 1879 in St Luke's Church, Bilston, Staffordshire, UK. (Esther Clarke was born Jun 1856 ? and died in 1931). This church unfortunately is no longer standing.

John was described as an Engineer on his marriage certificate.

On the 1891 census return he is described as a stationary Engine Driver, living with his wife and eldest daughter Kate, and sons William and John at 56, Chapel Street, Walsall, Staffordshire, UK.
A William Clarke is also on the census return as a lodger. It is likely that this was a relative of Esther.
