This must be the correct William and Martha the widow from 1851 census.
Only problem it says groom is a batchelor..

I suppose the information on the marriage bond could be mistake as mistakes are sometimes made.  Every other particular seems to fit perfectly with what we know already.

Thanks Lee, and to avm228

Thanks so much everyone for all the information.

So William's first wife was Catherine? Is there a baptism date listed for Jane Wilson, she would be my great grandmother x3. I don't how old she is because her marriage certificates only say "full age".

Jay

If I have the correct family in 1861 then this is Jane's baptism in 1815 in Cheshire

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NH3N-HN5

**********************************************
1861 Census

NAME:    Jane Harris   BIRTH:    1815 - Easton, Cheshire, England
SPOUSE:    George Harris   BIRTH:    1825 - Wem, Shropshire, England

RESIDENCE:    1861 - Wem, Wem, Shropshire, England
When and where did they die ?

Joseph Dodd born 1847 Corbridge, Northumberland  and Isabella Dodd (nee Thirwell) born 1848 Allendale, Northumberland. In 1911  they were living at Leadgate, Durham.

(As well as there being several people of these names around the surname is sometimes given as Dodds)

William Wilson ofAlkington hall death duties and will etc,were all read in 1848 so the death in december qtr 1847 seems correct.
Both Martha and Jane were baptized 13 feb 1823 .

Great detective work, davidft

That fits because I have Jane with her second husband, George Harris, living at Wem in 1861 and her place of birth is given as Easton, Cheshire.

Jay :D

The marriage seems correct, Martha Hayes m George Broster 1819 Cheshire.

Hayes is Barbara Wilson Mmn
