When was their first child born?

Eleanor is on the 1871 Census as mother to William Simpson (b) 1849 Berwick Upon Tweed Union
1871 census as follows
Registration district
Berwick
Sub-registration district
Berwick Upon Tweed
ED, institution, or vessel
7
Household schedule number
100
Piece
5182
Folio
34
Page number
19
 I traced his Birth Index and came up with Embleton mmn Therefore, have put the facts together and came up with Eleanor Embleton. Birth index is Volume 25 Page 32 Berwick upon Tweed 1849

I have earlier census that state William Simpson father is Richard Simpson married to Eleanor Simpson.

As far as I know Thomas Simpson (b) 1843 mmn Embleton 1843  S Quarter in BERWICK UPON  TWEED UNION  Volume 25  Page 27 is the oldest that I have found so far

There is also a Eleanor Simpson (b) 1846 mmn Embleton D Quarter in BERWICK UPON TWEED UNION  Volume 25  Page 24

Eleanor jnr and William are both on the same 1871 census above so definitely following the right line

Not sure ? it would explain a lot though
Does it give his or her place of birth ?

I saw that marriage Carole and wondered so clicked for more info:-

The volume 20 is not valid for district Tynemouth in the year 1840 and therefore there may be an error in the GRO index or in the transcription. Please see here for information about volumes associated with particular districts. The expected volume is 25.
Ashford: Somerset, London
England: Devon, London, New Zealand
Holdway: Wiltshire
Hooper: Bristol, Somerset
Knowling: Devon, London
Southcott: Devon, China
Strong: Wiltshire
Watson: Cambridgeshire
White: Bristol
Windo - Gloucestershire, Somerset, Wiltshire

Hi

When you check the page on freebmd - all other entries are for the Manchester RD.  I looked for Simpson in the same qtr/year but no match

She did die as Eleanor Blakey in 1849
