From the Notts baptism disc, Thomas and Hannah Weston or Wesson baptised the following children in Nottingham St Mary (the first two) and Notts St Peter (the rest)


1832 04 09      Alonzo   (this Alonzo died in 1848)
1833 10 22      Maria   
1836 08 10      Mary Ann   
1839 05 01      Elizabeth   
1841 10 03      Thomas   
1843 11 05      Joseph   
1846 02 01      Catherine   
1848 03 15      John   

I can't see any baptisms in Nott for Ellen or for a younger Alonzo, but since Thomas and Hannah had a daughter Mary Ann, clearly that's a possibility for their mother.

There are 2 marriages in Nottingham in the relevant time period for Mary Ann Wesson, both at Nott St Mary; either (or neither) could be Thomas and Hannah's daughter:

27.5.1863  Edward Baldock and Mary Ann Wesson
4.11.1872  William Birch and Mary Ann Wesson

I can't see any baptisms in Notts for any children of either of these two couples.

He is with his Wesson grandparents in 1861 in Nottingham.

this can't be the Alonzo that the OP wants to check, as he was born in 1868

Thanks for the info, but I have all of Thomas and Hannah's children from the NFHS disks.  The 1861 census has four grandchildren.  Alonzo was born in a Nottingham workhouse in 1861 and died before his first birthday.  Ellen Letitia survived to adulthood and married.  Arthur, b abt 1859, does not appear to have his birth registered, but he also lived to adulthood.  I can't trace a Mary E Wesson, another of Mary Ann's brood?
Mary Ann certainly had a fixation with the name Alonzo, with another a few years later, or rather that's what I want to prove.  If she is the mother, why did she give birth in Leicester?
As Mary was on the 1871 census (as Weston), if she did marry, it was after that.  She has a Samuel as a son too, another brick wall.  I've tried following the Birch marriage but drawn a blank  ???  I do wonder who she would marry in her circumstances. 
It doesn't help that this branch of the family is mainly Wesson but Weston is often recorded

The only thing I can add so far is in the newspaper, Edward Baldock is said to be marrying Mrs Mary Ann Wesson.

Do you have any of the marriages as I could probably look them up next week if it is any help.

So far noted
William Hart 1877 St Paul
Edward Baldock 1863 St Mary
William Birch 1872 St Mary
