Joseph John Taylor (Parish Records)

Please can someone help, I am trying to find the above in the 1891 census for Newent Gloucestershire.

Have him in the 1861,1871, as living with his parents, John and Sarah Taylor

Also have a John Taylor in 1891 along with son Enoch age 9

Enoch parents are John Taylor, but cant find any mention of his mother.

Another thought, could Joseph John and John be the same person.

Help in this brick wall would be greatly appreciated

So far I've not found him in other census records either but maybe he moved away at some point though appears to have moved back to Newent.

In 1881 John Taylor married Martha Hyde at Newent Register Office, they had 4 children Enoch 1881, Sarah Ann 1883, John 1885 & Martha 1888.

Martha died in 1888 aged 30 and their dau Martha died in 1891 aged 2.

John the father is living with his mother and father in both the 1881 & 1891 censuses, their surname is spelt TAILOR in the 1881 census.

In the BNA Gloucestershire Chronicle - Saturday 26 July 1913, this seems to be a record of Joseph John’s son, John, purchasing the land they leased,

Two cottages, gardens and enclosures of pasture land and pasture orcharding. 7a. 0r. 24p., at Gorsley, let to Mr. Joseph John Taylor, Mr. John Taylor, and the representatives of Mr. John Taylor, deceased, at £13 2s. Tithe rent charge 18s. 2d., value 1st January 13s. 3d.: land tax. 13s. 10d. Mr. John Taylor, £223.

This was part of the sale of the remainder of the Onslow estate, a very large estate in and around Newent, these remains amounting to more than 2500 acres.
