Unfit for further service due to declining strength
His pension was paid in Victoria until the September Quarter 1886 and was returned unclaimed 30th September 1887.  Unsure if John was married or not but a child Elizabeth was born to a John Dunn and Catherine Darcey at Fremantle in 1855 and another child Charles was born to John Dunn and Catherine Dawsey in Adelaide on 1st August 1859 but nothing to support this in the BMDs for Victoria.
