No Death record for Richard Simpson either, he's a pain in the bum this bloke.
He's on the 1861 census then not on the 1871 census and Eleanor is down as a widow so I'm guessing he died between those years but yet again nowt on him ?

Sure this isn't his death?

SIMPSON, RICHARD       53     
GRO Reference: 1862  J Quarter in BERWICK UPON TWEED  Volume 10B  Page 231

Do the maths and you get a birth year of 1809.

Marriages March qtr  1840   
 
EMBLETON    Eleanor         Tynemouth    20   392    

EDIT

Tree on FS shows she married Walter Blakey and died 1849
 

Just as an aside, the marriage could be cross-checked on the North Tyneside site, which confirms Walter Blakey. http://www.northtyneside.gov.uk/marriage-register.shtml

I can't find anything on SP either - thought they may have married there

It could have been an 'Irregular' cross-border marriage at Coldstream  :-\ http://www.rootschat.com/links/01lgs/ The problem with these is that they weren't all recorded.

Perhaps they didn't get married at all  :-\

Three cheers for Jen she was correct  :)
Richard Simpson did marry Eleanor Embleton on a cross border marriage at  Lamberton Toll 18th July 1841
And they were Presbyterian
Jen's always right you know  ;D

That's a nice find. I'm pleased to be right about the cross-border marriage, though I got the location wrong  ::) How fortunate you are that it was recorded.

Jen's always right you know  ;D

Far from it  ;D
