Do you have the couple on 1841 census.  Does the 1834 marriage give any more information eg which parish they were 'of' and witnesses

That baptism date seems to coincide with the one I just found. :)

Her mother's name seems to be the same as that of her eldest daughter too.

It also agrees with her age (39) on 1851 census.

I haven't checked all of the children, but the birth of William 1840 gives mother's maiden name as JOHNSTON.
Today I broke my personal record for most consecutive days alive.
