You'll find the 1861 census on www.familysearch.org, where there's a Martha Gurney 32 widow living in Biggleswade with 3 children, two of whom were born after 1850. It may be the wrong family as if her age is correct she'd be too young to have married in 1841.

It appears that the OP assigned the incorrect bride to the groom on freebMD, as per JJen posting(s)

Thomas wed Ann, not Martha

Birth Index in June 1847 for Thomas Gurney has mother's name as Brown
There is no birth index in same time/place for Peter Gurney

However as per Beds FHS Surnames Index CD there's a baptism at Biggleswade in 1848 for Peter Gurney, no similar baptism there for Thomas Gurney, while there is a baptism for Sarah Gurney in 1845. Think you need to check Biggleswade baptism register for names of parents
