Did John marry Elizabeth abroad?

Have you got birth certificates for the English children for Elizabeth's maiden name?

Is this John, or another John?

John and Elizabeth Johnson in 1911 have been married 38 years.

Is his first wife called Ann?

Marriage not in England because children born in E Indies?

Jane,
Could you post the census that you can find them all together, or have you got the birth certificate of John Johnson?
Thanks
