Was this the death you found?

BLAKEY, ELEANOR       32     
GRO Reference: 1849  M Quarter in NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE UNION  Volume 25  Page 253

If the age is correct gives a birth year of 1817 so younger by four years than the Eleanor that Davy has.  Also Davy's Eleanor appears alive and kicking in the 1871 census.

Doesn't matter what you try nothing promising shows up.

If they married pre-1837 then we are dependent on parish registers/online transcriptions.

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

Even just searching for Richard Simpson brings nothing of note up
Very strange

I notice that in the 1851 census all the family state they were born in Norham, Northumberland.  Perhaps it might be worthwhile accessing the marriage records for Norham to see if anything can be found there. 

There is just a possibility that for whatever reason the marriage missed going on the main GRO index.

Link below to the Northumberland Archives

I don't know if they can help but it may be worth a try.

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  :-\

You would think a name like Eleanor Embleton would be quite rare and easy to find  :-\
I'm really struggling to find much on Richard Simpson as births date around 1807 so unless he lied about his age on census records which all date his birth to 1809

I can see your Richard in 1851 at East Newbiggen, Berwick on Tweed.

Have you traced him in 1841?

I was just typing out exactly the same thing  ;D

I can't see any Simpson or Embleton baptisms in the Norham BT's (but I'm happy to be proved wrong) http://www.rootschat.com/links/01lgt/

Possibly they were Presbyterian?
