Here's their marriage:-

Guy, Laura 1877 September Wellington Sal Shropshire 6a 1221 
 Holmes, George 1877 September Wellington Sal Shropshire 6a 1221 
 Micklewright, Ann 1877 September Wellington Sal Shropshire 6a 1221 
TAYLOR, John 1877 September Wellington Sal Shropshire 6a 1221

They were married in 1877 so I looked in the 1881 census and found the following:-

Household:

 Name  Relation Marital Status Gender Age Birthplace Occupation Disability

 Laura TAYLOR   Head   M   Female   27   Shifnal, Shropshire, England       
 John GUY   Ill Son      Male   9   Walsall, Stafford, England   Scholar     
 Alfred GUY   Ill Son      Male   8   Wombridge, Shropshire, England   Scholar     
 William TAYLOR   Son      Male   3   Wombridge, Shropshire, England   Scholar

  Public Records Office Reference   RG11
  Piece / Folio   2682 / 36
  Page Number   63

Laura is listed as Head of the family, but note she is Married.  John must have been away from home on census night.  I did have a look but there are hundreds of John Taylor's listed!!!!!

Perhaps you could order the marriage certificate first which will give you his age, then you will know how old he was in 1881.  That will narrow the search down a bit!

Hope this helps
