James' first wife.
Going back to page one I posted a likely marriage and 2 possible Mary's.
You didn't get that marriage cert, (well you have no real need of it)
I had a look on RootsIreland and there is a marriage for James Mathews to Mary Richardson 1888 Haggardstown RC. which matches your bible. So considering she is not direct family I think this can be considered sorted.

Now where did the name Margaret McGuinness come from for James' mother?

I found.a James Mathews born 1866 to John Mathews and Margaret Mc Guinness ... They 2 sons... James in 1866 & (yet another) John born 1868... I found in the 1891 census in England a Jas Mathews with wife Mary, daughter Anne and brother John in Birkenhead and although I haven't yet confirmed it I am thinking this is my James b 1866, 1st wife, daughter and brother and ages listed are accurate...  Am going to order marriage cert for aforementioned James and Mary you posted in the hopes I can get more info for James even though Mary isn't mine

Unlikely you'll get anything more on that marriage cert, his mother's name won't be on it.

Where did you find that James born to John Mathews and Margaret McGuinness?

I did a search on Familysearch using the parameters James Mathews born 1866 - 1866 (this date has consistently come up most often even though family bible says 1869) in Louth, Ireland with a fathers name of John Mathews and the only one that comes up is one with Margaret Mc Guinness. Then I searched Margaret McGuinness and saw where John Mathews and she had 2 sons... a James Mathews born 1866 and a John Mathews born 1868. I found the 1891 England census that has a Jas Mathews (head) Mary (wife) Anne (daughter) and John (brother) all in Birkenhead with correct ages and I know that Anne was born in 1889 in Birkenhead. I haven't had the opportunity to see the census itself to make sure all are at the same location... I am currently going off the index. But, if I have it correct that would make the following correct

John Mathews m Margaret McGuinness and had children John (1868) and James (1866) m Mary ? and had Anne (1889) John and James (1894) then m Margaret White in 1909 and had Margaret (1915) and Desmond (1918)
