I can't find John after 1861.

There are some possible deaths/burials.

Name: John Belsher
Event: Burial
Event Date: 05 Feb 1865
Event Place: Bristol, Holy Trinity, St Philip, Gloucestershire, England
Age: 56
Christening Date:
Father: Belsher
Film Number: 4183225
Digital Folder Number: 4183225
Image Number: 00177

Deaths Sep 1863
BELCHER John Clifton 6a 94

Deaths Mar 1865
BELCHER John Clifton 6a 86

Deaths Jun 1870
Belcher John 65 Clifton 6a 117

Son Henry is with relatives, which probably points to the parents or at least one of them having died:

Baptisms for one of his children (from a CD)
Mary baptised 21 Feb 1836 St Philip & St Jacob age 3 weeks, address Lawrence Hill, father's occupation labourer.

so I suppose they should be at Lawrence Hill in 1841, if they were there in 1836 and still there in 1851? I'll see if I can find Lawrence Hill in 1841 and see if I can spot them.

Okay, looks as though his wife's name is wrong on the 1841 census:
Piece 378 book 6 folio 10 page 15
Lawrence Hill, St Philip & St Jacob, Bristol
John Belsher 35 Lab Y
Ann Do 30 Y
John Do 2 Y
Mary Do 5 Y

I was hoping his mother might be with him, to help with TO4G, but no luck there.
