This is the only John Barlow born Staffordshire in that time frame that i can see in the 1871 census with a father named William (although he is not a gamekeeper at that point):-

1871 census transcription details for: West Street, Hanley

National Archive Reference:
RG number: RG10
Piece: 2858
Folio: 5
Page: 3
Reg. District: Stoke upon Trent
Sub District: Hanley
Parish: Hanley
Enum. District: 9
Ecclesiastical District:
City/Municipal Borough: Hanley

Address: West Street, Hanley
County: Staffordshire

Name Relation Condition Sex Age Birth Year Occupation Where Born

BARLOW, William Head M 49 1822 Staffordshire
BARLOW, Mary Wife F 62 1809 Staffordshire
BARLOW, James Son M 19 1852 Staffordshire
BARLOW, Hannah Daughter F 14 1857 Staffordshire
BARLOW, John Son M 29 1842 Staffordshire<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
BARLOW, Martha Wife F 29 1842 Staffordshire
BARLOW, Eliza Daughter F 8 1863 Staffordshire
BARLOW, William Son M 5 1866 Staffordshire
BARLOW, Mary Daughter F 3 1868 Staffordshire
BARLOW, Elizabeth Daughter F 1 1870 Staffordshire

John and his father William are both Carters.

EDIT - looks like this John Barlow was already married to Martha and had 4 children.

What was John's occupation on his marriage certificate? Does it say if he was a widower or a bachelor?

2nd EDIT - you can rule out this one as he is on the 1881 census still married to Martha.
