- After Ann's death at Chesterfield in 1847, John was living with a family farming at Heanor during the 1851 census. Nothing further is known at this time of his later life or movements.
- The marriage licence for John Hill and Ann Bunting in 1826 states that John was 'over 21 and living at Morton, Derbyshire. This is almost certainly at Road Nook where John and Ann's children were born. Documentary evidence indicates that both John's father and grandfather, Thomas and John, were tenants of two messuages and farms on the estate of Road Nook House (built on the site of the old Manor House at Wessington, earlier known as Washington) near Brackenfield in Morton Parish.
John and Ann had moved away from here by about 1840.
