If John's first marriage was in NSW than there are 32x between 1860 and 1878.

Death 4678/1891 ROBERTS JOHN - WILLIAM - ALICE - CAMDEN * 11 Feb 1891

I can't find a family that fits in 1851. William a quarryman and Alice and son John born abt 1843.

25x John Roberts 1842 - 1844 in RD Carnarvon on FreeBDM

46x marriages for a William Roberts on FreeREG and no Alice.

Can't find John's first marriage on CofE PR on A. It may have been CofE but if one of the four inner-city parishes of Sydney it won't be in that data set.
