Well it's unusual for me to get there first!
There's a baptism at Norham (indexed on FamilySearch)
30 April 1849
William Simpson
parents Richard (Simpson) and Ellen Embleton

It looks like generally only one surname is given in the Norham register, as you would expect. Perhaps it might be an indication that they weren't married. It would be good to see the original.

Yeah I saw this one I would say its the correct entry for my Simpson
She's definitely Eleanor but of course Ellen could be short name for her

Yeah that will be the two of them so they weren't married in 1841 but I've done a search from 1830 to 1850 i think it was and found nothing

So looks like Eleanor parents are Thomas Embleton b 1778 and Elaine b 1778?
And Richards parents are William Simpson b 1781 Jane b 1781 though ages were rounded down on 1841 census by 5 years
So Richard and Eleanor were quite old when they got married by the looks of it

It's possible, but you need to be careful, as relationships weren't shown on the 1841.
That's why I was looking for baptisms, but they don't appear on the Norham BT's.
If you're near Newcastle Central Library it would be worth dropping in to the Local Studies dept to take a quick look at the Norham Presbyterian* Registers, just in case Richard and Eleanor can be found there http://www.rootschat.com/links/01lgw/

If they got married  :-\

* If I have the right person, Richard's daughter Jane married at a Presbyterian Church in 1878 (Berwickshire News, 11 June 1878)

Is that like a hard copy Jen or on microfilm? The Presbyterian Registers

I messaged a kind Rootschatter who goes regularly to Woodhorn, she will do a few lookups for you and report back.
