Daniel the maximum size for a photo is 500 KB.  Do you know how to resize a photo?  For me I find the photo I want, click on the three little dots at the top right hand of the screen. One of the options is Resize.  Click on that and then click on define custom dimensions.  You will need to go down quite a bit to get the right KB.  Try that and see what happens.

That's what I thought Annette.  Let's see if anyone else agrees.

Firstly at some stage Deptford ceased to be its own place and became part of greater London.
If he said London the census taker added the Middlesex.

Ancestry puts some or most of the records of Deptford under London or Lewisham.

So the change from Deptford is not surprising.

I too have ancestors shipwrights in Grove Place.

I also have a John Jones elsewhere in Kent -- old enough to be the dad.

I have several suggestions for the occupation of John Jones

Gardener -- most probable
Labourer though a little different to the other labourer
Leadener -- possibly blacking boots etc or stoves etc
dim and distant last badly written landowner

Lantener and leadener not found except as surnames on Google
Lanterner in French apparently means to dilly-dally
so maybe he was a jack of all trades?
