Richard Alder Gofton to Ann Thompson 1871, Q4, Tynemouth. 10b 292

In 1861 there are daughters Ann born 1853 and Mary Ann, 1858 which would fit with the death age of Mary Ann Gofton give or take a year.

They were living Hill Head House and Thomas Thompson was a farmer so it must be the same family

That's ok two heads are better than one :D

The mother was called Mary Ann born abt 1825. Tynemouth according to the 1861 census which I will do later for you.

In 1851 they seem to have a 2 year old child so we are looking for a marriage about 1848ish possibly.

Between 1846 and 1850 there are five Thomas Thompson marriages

Names that match for a wife include

Mary Ann Blair Jun 1847

In Mar 1849 there is but that may be too late for a 2 year old in 1851
Mason    Mary         Tynemouth   
Twaddle    Mary         Tynemouth   

there were lots of woman who married in both those quarters....

 A wee snippet on Spouses...

 The North Tyneside authority web site ( descendant of Tynemouth Register Office) shows marriage matches... (www.northtyneside.gov.uk) and as you had already deduced Ann and Mary Ann were the brides.
