I think in the 1851 Census it says for Marie HELM/ROBERT…

sa femme, même profession (ie his wife, same profession = porcelainier = porcelain maker).

I'm trying to find a better copy of the census to double check, but am pretty sure that's what it says.

Can't find a Death Certificate for Jean / John in France for the period you've suggested. Sorry!

OK, that would suggest he died in England most likely, unless he seperated from his wife, but then I doubt she would have put widow on her 1861 London census entry..
I'll come back to the rest of the family once I've got it all sorted out.

Found this on ancestry.com
Name:Jean Louis Antoine Emile Roberts
Gender:homme (Male)
Record Type:Naissance (Birth)
Birth Date:6 mars 1840 (6 Mar 1840)
Birth Place:Grigny, Lyon, Rhône, France
Father:Joachim Roberts
Mother:Doratha Helms

I wonder how the mother fits in with the family, given that hse has such a similar name?
