Hi,

His service records say,

Married:  9th December 1817

Unfortunately it doesn't where or to whom.


Regards,

There is a burial at St Mary, Paddington Green that could be a decent candidate for John's wife:

17 Sep 1843 Elizabeth Child (of) Boston Street, St Marylebone aged 50

Might be worth getting the death certificate to see what it says about her, particularly as death certificates usually described women as 'wife of' and sometimes also gave the man's occupation.
