He married Mary EDWIN in Buckingham by Licence3 on 21 Sep 1742.2 She was buried in Adstock on 25 May 1795. The burial entry had the notation "widow of late John, farmer".1

The marriage licence bond describes John as a labourer of Padbury, batchelor aged 25years & Mary Edwin of Padbury, a spinster aged 21 years, with John as one of the bondsmen and Nicholas Edwin, farmer of Padbury as the other, he most likely being Mary's father.
