There is a marriage of a John Read to a Maria Mills in Kensington London, in 1858.
As the only John Read I can find to fit the birth date turns up living in Saxlingham in the 1881 Census with a wife called Maria and children born in Kensington he seems to be our John.

As Maria was born at Stonham, Suffolk, was she there as a domestic servant and was this where she met John who had properly gone seeking work also?
