A possibility in 1851, but it is such a common name...

Census 1851:

Address: Ty Yn Twll County: Flintshire

BUCKLEY, John F Head Married M 41 1810 Agent And Farmer Of 110 Acres Holywell, Flintshire
BUCKLEY, Anne Head Unmarried F 39 1812 Trafford, Cheshire
BUCKLEY, Thomas Son Unmarried M 18 1833 Land Mineral Surveyor
Holywell, Flintshire
JONES, Anne Servant Unmarried F 22 1829 Servant
Holywell, Flintshire
JONES, Anne Servant Unmarried F 22 1829 Dairy Maid
New Market, Flintshire
ROBERTS, John Servant Widower M 52 1799 Farm Bailiff Holyhead, Anglesey<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
OWEN, Robert Servant Unmarried M 45 1806 Laborer
WYNNE, Thomas Servant Unmarried M 21 1830 Laborer
Holywell, Flintshire
JONES, Robert Servant Unmarried M 18 1833 Laborer

EDIT: and another, but I don't know how you'd connect either possibility with 'your' John, even if one of them was correct.

Address: North West Street, Holyhead County: Anglesey

ROBERTS, John Head Married M 51 1800 Mariner Holyhead, Anglesey
ROBERTS, Elizabeth Wife Married F 59 1792 Holyhead, Anglesey

It says Tailor for Elizabeth, but Taylor for John, assume they mean the same.

Went to familysearch put name, etc. in then choose one, then clicked on the link to Findmypast. Findmypast shows the actual record. I have only typed what the record says, hence the difference in the spellings.

John Roberts and Catherine Hughes were married 25 Oct 1795
12 Jan 1800 Robert, Son of John Roberts, Tailor, & Catherine his wife
26 Apr 1807 Richard, Son of John Roberts, Currier & Catharine his wife

Richard Roberts 1802 parents Owen & Elizabeth Roberts of Cefn Bach
