John had been married in England, sometime before 1810, to Susanna Emma Luttrel.  They had one child, John Richard, born 1809.
When John was transported, it appears that Susanna and John (jnr) may have remained in England. Susanna died in 1828 and then we find John (jnr) being present in the colony at the 1828 census and married in 1830. Young John appears to have arrived on the Surrey, 1820.
