Thank you girl guide -- that JOHN JONES in 1851 census might be worth my look and probably the original poster's look as well.
I am trying to work out if a 29 year old bachelor would marry a widow older than him.
Just remembered other members of the Jones family witnessed that wedding. So will check census and wedding see if any help. If census mentions East Malling or Maidstone or David you might hear my hurrah in Australia even in the UK.
But as its 3.30am i will obey the hours of silence rule.

I think what was put up was a gardener with wonky g.

Thank you
regards

Hi,

This could be coincidence but in 1881 there is a John JONES born London living about 3 miles from William in Northumberland, and he is a gardener,


1881  RG11/5086  f.50  p.21  Longbenton, Northumberland
Billy Pit
                                                           Gard not Dom
John JONES    Head     Wid    80    Landscape Gardener    London, Southwark


Regards,
Daisy
