Back to son John, in later life, this 1901 Census shows he was indeed born abt 1842.

1901; Ruardean Hill, East Dean, Gloucestershire, England
Household Role Gender Age Birthplace
John Brain Head M 59 Retired Coal Hewer. East Dean, Gloucestershire
Jane Brain Wife F 56 Grocer. East Dean, Gloucestershire
Elizabeth Brain Daughter F 31 Grocer Assistant. East Dean, Gloucestershire

I suspect John has "retired" early due to ill-health or similar. Cannot find an Inquest Record for him.

Searching the 1911 Census is difficult using FamilySearch as it only displays records of individuals, but not as households. These individually-found records MAY be our household, altho not sure abt Jane as a common name in the area.
