After John Manns died in 1867, looks like his widow Mary re-married.
Note maiden name McIntyre as per Mike's post.

Think this is husband John, pretty sure it's the same household despite being presented separately, and both same image number;

(Oddly I cannot find him locally on the 1861 Census.)

Cannot find any burial records for them in the PRs, but FreeBMD has;

Deaths Jun 1877
MEREDITH Mary 84 Newent 6a 179
Deaths Jun 1879
Meredith Mary 82 Newent 6a 171

Confirmed by GlosBMD;
Surname Given Names Age Year Died District Register Entry
MEREDITH Mary 84 1877 Gloucester, Newent 11 250
MEREDITH Mary 82 1879 Gloucester, Redmarley 8 486

IF the 1871 Census age is correct, looks like our Mary died in 1879 - hopefully the subscription websites will show the above Census was in Redmarley area.
N.B. Meredith is a common name in this general area !

I cannot find any likely death record for our John on FreeBMD in Glos or neighbouring Herefordshire & Worcestershire,or GlosBMD or PRs.
