I am looking for the name of John's first wife who died before March 1907.
He was living in Poplar, East London in 1912.

Is this him with his second wife in the 1911 census? :-

If so then this seems to be him in the 1901 census with first wife (a bit older than he says in 1911 but that could be because his second wife is younger):-
